"Herbarium" is gaining popularity as an interior item and gift. Herbarium means "plant specimen", and it is common to bottling preserved flowers or dried flowers with a special solution.
I'd like to make it myself, but it seems that it will cost a lot of money just to prepare flowers and solutions ... At that time, a strong ally is Hundred yen store. This time, I will introduce how to make "Nanchatte" herbarium made from artificial flowers.
What you need to prepare is a container that can be used for artificial flowers and stoppers, and starch. This time, I bought them all at a 100-yen shop.
First, cut the artificial flowers to an appropriate length and pack them in a container. It will be smooth if you imagine in advance what kind of herbarium to use.
Gently pour the starch into the container and fine-tune the position with a stick or tweezers to complete. Because it has an appropriate viscosity, the flowers do not float or sink, and the quality does not look like an artificial flower at first glance. It's even more beautiful when placed on the windowsill where light enters.
It's fun to think about the color scheme and I want to make more and more, so it's attractive to be able to do it at a small price. Considering the quality of the flowers, I would like to try a full-fledged herbarium after all, but if you find a good material with Hundred yen stores, why not try making it as a trial?
