Supported by The Reject Shop

The latest interiors trend taking over the wall art space are herbariums!

您可能想知道什么植物标本室?They are similar to displaying pressed flowers or leaves but the sample sizes are generally much larger so you can see how a plant branches or blooms, and they have a detailed label with information about the species, where and when it was collected, and by whom.

标本室通常是在大学或植物园中用于研究目的的,但已进入室内空间,今天我将向您展示3种简单的技术,您可以用来制作自己的技巧。

I sourced all of the items for this DIY from拒绝商店根据您购买的尺寸框架,您可以以低至15美元的价格制作自己的植物标本室!

观看此快速视频,以了解它的容易程度或继续阅读以下分步说明。

Items you will need:

  • Freshly picked plant or flower cuttings (these should be significant in size and not just the flowers, see the tips section below)
  • 框架(我们所有的都来自拒绝商店)
  • Several sheets of clean blank paper
  • Sheet of white cardboard large enough to fit frame
  • 大型精装书或其他重量
  • Craft glue
  • 油漆刷
  • 白色胶带和笔的手写标签,或用于印刷标签的计算机和打印机

Steps

Technique 1 – Pressed and framed in glass

1。Carefully press your cuttings in between two sheets of white paper and place heavy books or other weights on top. Leave to dry out for 3-7 days depending on your climate.

2。干燥后,将样品放在两张玻璃纸之间,确保为您的标签留出足够的空间(理想情况下,应该位于右下角)。

3。Secure your label in between the sheets of glass. You may need to use glue to ensure it doesn’t move, as the paper will be thinner than your plant sample.

4。Slide the glass sheets back into the frame and display your herbarium in your home!

Approach 1

技术2 - 干燥并放置在框架中

1。该技术非常适合想要保持浆果或种子的植物。只需使切割完全干燥,这可能需要长达几周的时间。

2。Once dry, it will become brittle so handle with care. Place it inside your box frame and secure your label. I didn’t use any glue to keep the dried branch in place but you may need to use a few spots of glue depending on the size of your sample and frame.

3。将您的艺术品安装在您的家中,并欣赏这个美丽的植物标本室的深度和细节。

Technique 3 – Pressed and framed on white cardboard

1。Carefully press your cuttings in between two sheets of white paper and place heavy books or other weights on top. Leave to dry out for 3-7 days depending on your climate.

2。Arrange your specimens on the A3 sheet of cardboard. If you are placing several specimens in the one frame, it looks best when the bottoms of the stems line up but you can arrange these however you like.

3。用手工胶和画笔小心地将所有标本粘合到位。

4。将您的标签粘贴到位。

5。Mount your artwork in your home and appreciate how the specimens change colour over time.

Tips:

- 与压制的花朵不同,植物标本室应该是足够大的切割(样品),您可以看到它是什么类型的植物,其生长,分支等。因此,请确保采用包括几个分支的大型切割尺寸。
- 对于最佳样本,重要的是要尽快按下样品。
– Be mindful that you may need to seek permission before collecting samples, so check the rules in your local area.
