    • What is the Beauty of Pressed Flowers?
      Pressed Flowers (referred to as “oshibana” in Japanese) is a flower art in which natural flowers are pressed flat, and used for small handicrafts and artworks. This process isn’t just limited to flowers; grasses, leaves, vegetables and fruits can also be pressed, and the key to maintaining their lively colors is the usage of fresh ingredients and thorough drying. Pressing is a method that fully utilizes natural beauty, and since no two living flowers are exactly the same, neither will any two pressed flowers be!
    • How to make a Pressed Flower Candle
      After some instructions, the candle-making class begins! Use a set of tweezers and carefully arrange the pressed flowers on the side of a white candle. Your crafts class instructor’s main field of expertise is pressed flowers, and the variety in stock is no less than expected. Deciding which ones to use might be an ordeal! Feel nature’s beauty and diversity as you make your candle more colorful, one flower at a time!
    • Your Floral Candle is Complete. It’s Truly One-of-a-Kind!
      Once your pressed flowers have been arranged the way you want, your pressed-flower candles are complete. What you have won’t just be a candle; it’ll be a miniature diorama of nature’s vivid beauty! Flower candles are a quick and easy way to bring flowers into your everyday interior. When lit, the candle’s gentle flame will illuminate the flowers for an even more beautiful display.
