Instructions

Step 1

Have a Lowe's associate score and snap a clear acrylic sheet into twelve 12" x 12" squares.

Step 2

On six of the squares, measure a 2" border and tape it off. Paint the border with white satin paint to create the illusion of a photo frame mat. Let dry. On the six unpainted squares, place pieces of painter's tape in each corner (this will prevent the drill from slipping). Mark the tape 1/2" in from both sides of each corner.

Step 3

Stack each unpainted square on top of a painted square and secure with a clamp. (You should have six pairs.) Place a piece of scrap wood beneath one pair and drill through the marked corners. Make sure to drill through both layers so that they line up exactly. Repeat for the remaining pairs.

Good to Know

Test one hole by placing a bolt through both layers to be sure it fits before drilling the others. Once you finish drilling each pair, hold them together with a rubber band.

Step 4

Arrange pressed flowers between two squares and then attach the squares to each other using bolts and acorn nuts. Repeat for the rest of the squares. On the back of each finished piece, place picture-hanging strips on the top and bottom hidden behind the border. Mount the strips on the wall to hang the completed art in a grid.
