I started a Pinterest board devoted entirely to Faux Flowers (DIYs) to keep all of my favorites in one handy place, and invited several crafty bloggers to pin their favorites as well. Right now, as of me typing this post, there are 76 tutorials to make flowers out of paper, coffee filters, paper bags, fabric and buttons, with more tutorials being added regularly.
