I don’t know about you, but I do love some flower crafts ideas to cheer me up. We have a collection of mixed flower crafts for you here today. Some are perfect flower crafts for kids to make, others you may like to make FOR them. Flowers are so pretty at ANY time of year – colourful and just lovely. I often feel “guilty” though about having cut flowers (occasionally, I guess that is fine), so I like to surround myself with flower crafts instead! Enjoy these oh so pretty Flower DIYs!! And bring some COLOUR back into your world!
Many of these flower crafts would be suitable for Mother’s Day, for a Summer Party or even as a gift to a friend on Valentine’s Day. Other’s may suit some Wedding Planning or are “just because” crafts!
We have split the post into two – some generally linked Flower DIYs and crafts, and then below a “Flower Crafts Hangout” – where we chat about and show our flower crafts to you directly, including additional information links to the flower craft posts!! I hope you find it helpful!
