DIY: How To Make Resin Crystals (With Dried Flowers In Them!)

Have you seen those beautiful crystals with dried flowers in them floating around on Pinterest and wanted some of your own? Or seen DIY crystals and wondered how to make them? Fair enough! They’re beautiful – and surprisingly easy to recreate. Today, I’m going to sharing a fun tutorial on how to make resin crystals. Get your gloves on!

Hello, crafting friends – if you somehow missed both the title and that massive, Pinterest worthy image, today we’re going to be learning how to make our own DIY crystals out of resin. And once you’ve finished reading, you’ll hopefully go and get your eyes checked. (And Pin that image. I’ll win you over eventually.)

Anyways . . . let’s get this show on the road. You guys know I’m not great with things that take real skill, so this DIY is way easier than it looks.

These DIY crystals are easily one of the favourite things I’ve ever created. They’ve got so much gorgeous potential. Different coloured flowers, using them in crafts, creating a little altar space featuring them . . . hell, you could use them in my DIY crystal hair clips for a quirky twist!

If you’re a fan of crystals and plants (who isn’t, right?) make sure you have a watch of my crystal planter video below. I think you could make some stunningย planters with these floral crystals.

But I’m getting ahead of myself! Before we look at how toย useย these stunners, let’s learn how to make them!

You Will Need:

  • Dried flowersYour girl is embarrassingly lazy and instead of picking flowers and drying them, I order them off Etsy. Supporting small businesses, right? Plus, I live in London – where are you expecting me to pick dainty, craftable flowers from? The internet, that’s where.
  • Resin. Resin is the thing the crystals are made out of – and, conveniently, it’s super easy to make. This is the exact brand I use and it works a treat . . . plus it’s available from Amazon, which is pretty convenient.
  • Crystal moulds. These were an absolute pain in the ass to find; I only found two sellers, they’re both abroad and from Etsy. I’m actually on the hunt for larger crystals, but I’ve had no luck on that front so far. This is the seller I used and their moulds were perfect!

And that, my dear friends, is it!

What You Need To Do:

Instead of writing a long method for something that really took no time at all, I made a video. It’s 1 minute 14 seconds – have a watch! (But please don’t judge too harshly . . . this is a very old video!)


  • Cut down one side of your moulds so you can just pop the crystal right out. If you do this, make sure you tape the cut closed while leaving the crystals to set.
  • When you first pour the resin, wait a minute and come back to top it up. It takes a while to move down the mould and set, so you could think you’ve filled it up . . . and end up with it halfway full.
  • Leave a few hours longer than the recommended setting time. The resin is still slightly malleable once it’s set so you can deform it.
  • Water + resin = liquid. Make sure you don’t get it wet while it’s setting or just set.

Finished Products


I’m really excited to experiment more with these; there’s so much resin left over (and I’ve already made like 4 rounds of these and similar things. I have some awesome bookmarks to show you) and the moulds are reusable. One thing I did try was adding glitter to a batch and that looked awesome. There’s a lot of potential for this craft . . . we shall see what I try next.

(To create a sacrificial altar, that’s what I’m going to try next. Fight me on it.)

And with that, we conclude this post! What did you guys think of this DIY? Do you like crystals – would you try create this yourself? Did you like the video? Let me know your thoughts down below!
