How to Make Funeral Flowers Into Jewelry

Whether you use the petals to make beads or encapsulate small dried flowers in resin to form pendants, jewelry made from funeral flowers is a remembrance that you may wear close to your heart. The key to making these stunning mementos is to make sure the flowers are completely dry before you start. In this article, we’re going to show you how to make funeral flowers into jewelry.

What are the Best Ways to Make Funeral Flowers into Jewels?

We all know how expensive funerals can be. But, when we hear the word “funeral,” most of us think of flowers, not jewelry.

A very common question that people ask is how to make funeral flowers into jewelry. If you are interested in making something similar, you can use the following steps:

  1. Collect your flowers. This can be done by cutting off the stems of your flowers and then using a vase or container to collect the petals and leaves from each one. 
  2. Clean them with soap and water and dry them thoroughly with a paper towel or cloth before proceeding to step 3. 
  3. Place the petals on top of each other, in a circular shape, so that it looks like a flower pot with its stem still attached at the bottom of it. You can also place it upside down to make it look like a cone shape (this will require more work). 
  4. Cut off any parts that are not usable for your project – this includes any leaves that might be too small or broken pieces of petals that you cannot use for whatever reason (such as they might be too small or too far away to attach easily).
  5. Fill your flower pot with glitter and then pour a light layer of glitter on top of it so that the entire pot is covered.
  6. Take a thin strip of metal and attach a hook to the top so you can use it as a handle for holding your project in place if you want. You can also use craft wire, or something else similar, which will require more work to patch together afterwards.
  7. Pour your plaster of Paris dough over the top of your glitter-covered pot and carefully smooth it into a thin layer of dough so that there is a thin layer of dough on top and bottom.
  8. Put your project inside the pot, and use your metal hook to hold it in place if you need to.
  9. Using two spoons, carefully press down on the top crust to form a depression in which you can pour some water and then set it in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  10. Bake for 12 minutes or until the crust is slightly brown and cooked through.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before opening the pot. 
  12. Depending on the size of your project, you may need to do this a few more times and adjust the time accordingly until it is completely dry and firm.

The Best Types of Flowers for Making Jewelry

Different types of flowers can be used to make different types of jewelry. For example, roses are a popular choice for making earrings and bracelets, while lilies are a good choice for making necklaces.

Earrings and bracelets

Smaller succulents will be easier to work with when creating earrings out of just succulents. However, if you want to use succulents to spice up a pair of antique earrings, any size that fits the earring will suffice. If you need an arrangement that can be used for more than one event while still looking great, silk flowers are the way to go. Using fresh flowers is a great option if you’re looking for a craft that’s both fun and easy, and will make you feel like a goddess when you wear it. Even better, your date can retain this as a memento of the evening instead of a boring corsage.

Necklaces

When making a necklace, one way to create more of the flower is by using the petals from both sides of a flower. This way, the necklace will have more flowers in it. Other ways include using only one side of a flower and using thin pieces of flowers to create designs in other mediums such as paint or fabric.

Headbands

Headbands are worn in the hair or around the forehead to keep hair out of the face or eyes. Headbands are usually loops of elastic or horseshoe-shaped plastic or metal. Add a flower. Place the flower next to the headband and wrap the metal wire around it, starting below the bloom. To provide strength and stability, wrap the stem several times.

Floral jewelry can be made from virtually any type of flower, albeit the smaller the blossom, the better. Roses, tuberoses (rajnigandha), carnations, orchids, and jasmine are among the most often employed varieties.

Best Materials for Making Jewelry in the Home

Jewelry making is a popular hobby and craft these days. There are many ways to make jewelry at home. One of the easiest ways is to use materials that you can find around the house or in your local store.

The materials you should use depend on what type of jewelry you want to create, but some common ingredients are:

  • Metal: copper, gold, silver, bronze, aluminum, brass
  • Glass: clear glass for earrings and beads; colored glass for necklaces; cut glass for rings
  • Leather: calfskin leather for bracelets and belts; pigskin leather for purses
  • Fabric: cotton cloths or satin fabrics for purses
  • Paper: thin paper for earrings and beads; thin cardstock for bracelets
  • String: nylon, cotton, hemp, wire, thread
  • Wood: hardwood like maple or oak for rings; strips of plywood to make pendants and necklaces

Conclusion:

Transform your cherished recollections into pieces of art that will remain alive and well for generations to come. Flowers can be preserved into timeless mementos. You may give your own, treasured items a fresh lease on life by meticulously crafting them, whether it’s a flower preserved in a lovely resin necklace or something else entirely. Invest in a one-of-a-kind keepsake to ensure that your most joyful memories will never fade.
