I did a quick little update the other day.
Yeah, I don't iron my clothes but give me some fern and I whip that iron right out.
Remember when I showed you this back in November?
Well it was looking like this recently.
It had faded. But it lasted quite awhile.
I do like the color it faded to.
It just didn’t seem summery so I just peeled it right off and saved it.
It came off in one piece too.
I thought I’d try a different fern this time.
I grabbed a couple of supplies after finding some fern in the yard.
I just ironed the fern between the wax paper. It’s best to use a dry iron.
It doesn’t take much heat.
Peel it off the paper carefully.
Spray it with a bit of glue and just press it on a plate or wherever you’d like.
They stay flexible so you can bend them into different shapes.
I’m still not sure how I feel about these fern leaves.
It will stay for now. It just seemed to darken a bit.
I think the iron had some water in it or it was too hot.
But I have a ton of fern in the yard so I can try again and again.
I guess I could try some flowers too.
It’s a quick and easy way to make some white dishes stand out a little more.
