"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15

Spring is winding to an end, so before all your flowers fade and give way to summer grasses, we wanted to share with you how we enjoyed a day of Flower Pounding.

You, too, can make your own beautiful projects with flower pounding!




Here's part one in a step-by-step photo tutorial to help inspire you!
