WeCrochet Podcast Episode 8: Blooming Spring

It’s springtime and on this week’s episode of the WeCrochet Podcast, the team talks about spring projects. Even though this spring is like no other that anyone has ever experienced, we are continuing to crochet, connect with others, and find joy.

First Sara has a special message about what is happening in our company. Next Producer Sarah and Heather check in with each other while working from home. Closet recording sessions are a new frontier for our team and we promise to make them better.

Sara and Heather discuss all the ways to use crocheted flowers. Crocheting lends its self to creating beautiful boutiques but sometimes you need some inspiration on how to use all those flowers.

Some listeners call in, leave a voicemail and say hi. Thank you! Please keep calling and leaving us voicemails 360-334-4847. We truly love hearing from you.

Regan and Heather answer a question about submitting design proposals. Plus Heather’s crochet fail from last week has become a success.


Lastly, Heather interviews Camden on her favorite spring designs for the Blooming Spring Collection. We also get to learn more about what Camden does at WeCrochet and her crochet journey.

Tutorial: How to Make a Crocheted Flower Wreath
How to make a crocheted flower wreath: an image of a wreath covered in crocheted flowers

Hooray, the Spring Issue of WeCrochet Magazine is now available, and in this issue we provided 10 Ideas for Crocheted Flowers. Today let’s learn how to use your flowers to make a crocheted flower wreath!

Crocheted flower wreath project supplies: a wreath form, yarn, and a crochet hook

Project Materials Needed:

  • 10 Crocheted flowers
  • A foam wreath form
  • Yarn
  • A crochet hook (to match yarn size)
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors
  • (Optional) Greenery or other wreath accents

A note about the project materials:

Crocheted flowers: You can use any crocheted flower pattern you want, or make up your own. For our wreath, we used flowers from the Flower Garden Scarf pattern, and the Flower Girl Hairclip pattern, and crocheted them in Mighty Stitch Worsted.

  • NOTE: The number of flowers you need depends on the size of your wreath, the size of your flowers, and how full you want the wreath to look. Make it your own!

Wreath form: Ours is 10″ and from the dollar store.

Yarn: Use this to wrap the wreath form. We used Mighty Stitch Super Bulky to cover the wreath form.

Blocking Crocheted Flowers:

Before you begin assembling your wreath, block your crocheted flowers. To block the flowers:

Blocking crocheted flowers on a blocking mat, with T-pins

Mist flower with water, then pin it to a blocking mat to spread petals. Allow to dry.

Covering the Wreath Form with Yarn

To cover up the foam finish of our wreath form, we decided to crochet Mighty Stitch Super Bulky yarn around the form.

  • Alternately, you can just wrap the yarn around the wreath form, using a small dab of hot glue to secure the ends of the yarn.

How to crochet around a wreath form:

Covering a wreath form with yarn and crochet
  1. Tie yarn around the wreath form, then insert hook inside the yarn circle around the form.
  2. Yarn over and pull a loop through. You have one loop on your hook.

3. Wrap yarn around the form, going through the center of the wreath, and catch it with your hook. Pull yarn through loop on hook.

4. Wrap yarn around the wreath in the other direction (around the outside of the wreath form), and catch it with your hook. Pull yarn through loop.

5. Continue to crochet yarn around the wreath form this way, alternating between bringing yarn through the wreath opening, and around the back of the wreath, until the wreath is completely covered in yarn.

Keep your chain of loops around the outside of the wreath form.

6. To finish, chain 10 to create a loop for hanging. Connect end chain to first chain to create the loop. Fasten off and cut yarn. Weave in any ends.

Decorating the Crocheted Wreath with Flowers

Now for the fun part! You get to decorate the wreath with your crocheted flowers and any other accents you want to add.

Pin the flowers on the wreath using straight pins with a small head (like dressmaker’s pins or floral pins). Arrange the flowers however you like!

Add other wreath elements, such as greenery or ribbons, and pin in place.

And, you’re done!

The issue includes 10 ideas for using up crochet flowers and all the patterns we reference below.

Here is one of our favorite ideas: Make a Crochet Flower Bouquet!

Gather Materials Needed:

Make the Pieces for Crochet Flower Bouquet

Choose your favorite colors for Curio Crochet Thread #3. Use your crochet hook to make the Small and Medium flowers from the Flower Garden Scarf Crochet Pattern. Mix and match the colors as you like.

If the flowers are looking a bit wavy, you can block them! Soak the flowers in cold water for 20 minutes. Lay them flat to dry or use T-Pins to spread them on blocking boards. Check out our blocking kit if you need more blocking tools.

Attach the flowers to the floral wire by inserting the wire through a few stitches at the back of the flower. Further secure the flower by bending the wire and/or using the yarn ends to tie and attach. Trim or bend the wires so the flowers are varying heights.

Arrange and Assemble the Crochet Flower Bouquet

Gather a collection of additional flowers or greenery. It’s fun to pick additional flowers that are a similar color palette to your crochet flowers. Arrange the flowers in a vase or mason jar. Bend the floral wires as needed to help flowers stay in place.

For an added crochet touch, arrange the flowers in a mason jar and then crochet the Lovestruck Jar Cozy as a mason jar cover. This pattern is made in Curio #10, so it’s easy to perfectly match the jar’s color palette with your crocheted flowers.
