This is something different I tried when between projects. I saw photos of flowers done by Pat Sherman
and Cathy Krumrei and asked how they were made. Both ladies willingly gave me information and then I downloaded Cathy’s book “FOREVER FLOWERS” and found this an easy to follow guide to creating flowers.
Made from a bit of green or semi green stick, a bit of paint and your imagination and you can create something
that makes a good present. Easy to make a dozen flowers while having a cuppa break.
These wooden flowers were new in our area and soon started to sell allowing me to buy more tools, every
woodworkers dream. For those that are interested, the book “FOREVER FLOWERS” can be purchased from
There are many ways to display these flowers. Pic 2. A blackwood background (any wood can be used) a piece of tree branch, flowers and two hand carved butterflies. (Butterflies can be purchased from a hobby shop if different type wanted.)
Pic. 3. A free standing arrangement or can be wall mounted. Let the imagination run free..
