25 diy flower projects

My favorite Saturday morning ritual is visiting the farmer’s market to pick up bunches of wildflowers. The bright colors are a cheery way to start day! I’ve been wanting to learn more about flower arranging, so I started a Pinterest board … and the next thing I knew I had wasted 2 hours going down the rabbit hole of flower related crafts. You guys seemed to like the 25 Hair DIYs so here are 25 (plus a few bonus!) flower projects to add to your to do list.

    Oh Steph! You just mentioned to me before I would find loads of inspiration on the net for my wedding and here are three ideas I love right here! Was thinking how beautiful those peonies would look as napkin rings to start with. Gorgeous. Not sure about the giant flower though, but those girls in the pic look amazing with them. Thanks for the inspiration!

      I am just a wee bit addicted to site design (and apparently bright colors too!). Are you on the final countdown now for baby #3?

    Hey Steph! Your timing couldn’t be more perfect. After having a good browse around the stores and seeing the ridiculous amount of money they want for flower jewellry, I’m in the mood for making some and was going to go hunting for inspiration. You’ve done the hard work for me!
