How You Make It: Pick some tiny flowers and dry them between paper towels in a heavy book for a day or two. Lay one piece of Contact paper sticky-side up on a flat surface. Gently place flower onto Contact paper. Cover with another, similarly sized piece of Contact paper. Press to remove air bubbles. Trim to shape of flower, leaving at least half an inch space around the flower. Punch hole near top. Thread ball chain through hole.

“We Tried It” tip: Dry more flowers than you need, as some may crumble or not look that great.
