36 Inspiring Flower Craft Ideas

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.


This article is about the best flower crafts, about how to make them and where to get the directions to assist in making them.

While searching for different flowers, I was amazed at the number and types of flower patterns available, if we just have time to look for them. I'm hoping that I can be of some assistance to you by listing the flower crafts that I found and also giving you the site address that will take you directly to the directions. I have found that sometimes it takes more time searching for ideas than it does to actually make the item.

To make the flower corsage shown above, go to the Tea Rose Home site.
