A week or two ago, I noticed the spring flowers were starting to pop up in front of the house. In true Oregon fashion, it’s been alternating between rain and sun, which seems to make them happy. I was pleased to see a couple of them had bloomed yesterday morning. Before I could even enjoy them a little, a driving rain storm blew through and drove them into the ground. Now they’re sitting in a vase inside the house where I can at least look at them for a few days instead of watching them lay facedown on the sidewalk like they just went to a wild party. This gloomy time of year I’ll take my flowers however I can get them…even hung over.
This happy little Spring Time Flower Garland from Wee Folk Art combines felt, crochet and embroidery, making it a great lap project.
Who would have guessed you could make such cute, modern flowers using Q-tips? Homemade Ginger shows how she made her version.
These DIY Swirly Paper Flowers from Muhaiminah Faiz on Instructables look like they’d take some time, but would be completely worth it!
This Pop-up Peony Card from Peter Dahmen is another long project, but can you imagine the face of the recipient when they open it?
I can picture all kinds of fun ways to use these Crochet Pansies from Little Monkeys Crochet.
These Pinecone Zinnias from A Fanciful Twist are a good lesson in looking at a potential craft project from a different angle.
This Pressed Flower Jewelry Dish from Garden Matter doesn’t just look like a flower was used to make it – it was!
I know these flower embellished t-shirts had their moment a few years ago, but I really like the way Make It and Love It sewed the petals down on this one.
This Spring Paper Flower Garland from Lia Griffith is so tropical looking. It’s reminds me of a lei, and makes me want to go somewhere with sun and sand.
This Floral Letter from The Mrs. and Momma Bird is so pretty, and wasn’t it nice of her to make it an S?
Flowers are no strangers around here, so this is a little collection of where they’ve popped up here before:
