Here’s how to make a really easy window hanging for Mum.

Place some flowers inside the pages of a book and leave them for 4-5 days to flatten and dry out.

These flowers have dried out really well.

See if you can find a plastic cover, such as those on top of cakes or salad boxes.

Carefully cut out a flat piece of the plastic box.

Lay the flowers on top of the piece of plastic.

Carefully cover the plastic and flowers with Glad Wrap. 

Carefully push as many bubbles and lines out of the Glad Wrap as you can.

Trim around the edges of the plastic and the Glad Wrap.

Use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top of your window hanging.

Tie either some string or wool or something from nature and display it in your window.
