There are so many ways to crochet flowers, but how do you display them after you make them? I love this cute crochet flower bouquet idea!
Do you love the look of crocheted flowers? Of course you do, because who doesn’t, I say! A pretty crochet flower in a bright color just says spring to me. I say you take some of these pretty yarn flowers and create a bouquet.
Crochet Flowers Pattern
The pattern for these flowers is as follows:
- Chain 63
- Decrease in the fourth chain from the hook and in each stitch all the way across
- Skip a stitch and decrease 6 times into the next stitch. Skip one stitch and single crochet into next stitch. Repeat all the way across.
- Bind off, leaving a 10 inch strand. Roll your flower and sew together with the strand.
I have a brilliant tip if you want a variety of colors and don’t want to buy a ton of full sized skeins of yarn. Get these lovely Lion Brand bonbons:
Are they not the cutest things you’ve ever seen in your life? I love them! The only thing better than full-sized skeins of yarn is mini ones! So get crocheting and make a bunch of flowers. Then you’re ready to assemble your crochet flower bouquet . . . here’s how it’s done.
Gather These Supplies
- Lion Brand bonbons – Crayons
- Crochet hook (size depends on how large your flowers are)
- 3/16″ dowel rod – 2
- Acrylic paint – green
- Craft knife
- Hot glue gun
- Ruler or tape measure
Use your tape pencil and pencil to mark off 12″ on the dowel rod. Each dowel rod is 36″ long and will make three stems.
You can use a regular saw to get through your dowel rod quickly, but if you aren’t a saw kind of gal (I didn’t have access to one), then use your craft knife as a saw. Just go about partway through on either side to score and then break it over a table. Hi-yah!
Here are all my dowel rods, ready for paintin.’
Use a pretty bright green color to paint your dowel rods.
Let them dry.
Then simply hot glue to the back of a flower – they take about two seconds to set.
Display your pretty crochet flower bouquet in a fun vase – I love how they look with the natural wood. Happy spring to you!
