We love simple flower craft ideas that can be incorporated into your home decor. Dried flower crafts, pressed flower crafts and paper flower ideas are just a few of the inspirations we want to give you today. Flowers bring so much life and color to your home, so we thought we'd give you some ideas on decorating with flowers.
We gave tips not long ago on the Best Places to Buy Flowers and now it only seems right to give you some flower craft ideas for once you've bought your flowers.
We're also including ideas incorporating dried flowers that you might already have around your home. There's also the option to go out into your garden and pick some flowers to use in a craft project.
