I love Flower doodles because they’re such a versatile and fun way to add decoration to absolutely anything!
The best part about doodling flowers? They’re so easy!!!
All you need is a piece of paper (or a notebook) and a pen. I like to use the Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens (either the XS or S) as they’re great value, smooth to draw with and the ink dries quickly.

Anyway, back to the flowers. In this post, I will cover:
How to draw individual flowers.
How you can use these flowers to draw a wreath.
Ideas for flower corner borders.
Ideas for floral borders.
Other ideas for flower doodles.
Doodling is a great way to relax after a busy day. It allows you to create something you’re proud of. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced doodler or a complete newbie – anyone and everyone can do it!
Doodles don’t have to be perfect, they can be off centre or a bit messy – that’s what gives them character. Even in real life, no flower is perfect.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. If you’re not sure at first, use a pencil or draw on a piece of scrap paper.
Practice, practice, practice.
Now, let’s draw some cute flower doodles!
Grab your supplies, find a comfy chair and you’re good to go.
Below are 16 individual flower doodles plus 5 different ways to draw roses. You can try out a few or go through each one – it’s totally up to you. This set is the key to unlocking the art of drawing flowers!
I guarantee that once you’ve given these flower components a try, you’ll go back to them again and again. In just a few steps, you will have some flowers that look good enough to eat…maybe not eat but you get what I mean, right?!
Once you’re feeling comfortable with the individual flowers, you’re ready to combine a few of them to create something a bit more intricate!
They might look complicated, but these wreaths are actually very easy to put together!
Start by drawing a circle in pencil. Draw around a mug, a cup or a coaster – anything! This will be your guide.
Next, pick some flower doodles and add them one by one to your circle.
Keep going until your wreath is complete. You can leave a gap in the wreath or continue around the entire circle.
Add in extra embellishments like spots, dots or individual leaves.
If your flowers are in pencil, draw over them in ink. If not, move onto the last step.
Finally, erase the circle and any other pencil marks. You can add colour if you want or just leave it as it is.
Corner Flowers and Floral Borders
Similar to the wreaths, use the selection of flowers to create a floral corner design or a border. For the corner design, use a pencil L-shape as your guide and a straight line for the border.
I used my pastel coloured Tombow Dual Brush pens to add some colour to these doodles to make them stand out a little more.
Other Ideas For Flower Doodles
One you have mastered the set of flower doodles, you can easily use them in other designs.
Try drawing a bunch of flowers in a vase or a jar.
Use the flowers to decorate lettering or hand written font.
How about using the flowers to fill an area or shape?
Or you could even use them to make a card or some artwork!
So give these flower doodles a try and see what you can come up with.
