Flower crafts ideas & DIY tutorials
There’s a lot of love out there for recent blog posts sharing Olga Prinku’s dried flower botanical hoop art embroideries. Pinterest even shared an image from the post on their own social media. Which sent the page into the stratosphere as you can imagine. But it got me thinking that visitors to the site might miss other inspirational flower crafts ideas unless I made them easier to find. So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do here. I’ve pulled together all the best flower craft ideas from our blog for you to enjoy. Hope you find one or two flower craft projects you love. X
