Here is one of our favorite ideas: Make a Crochet Flower Bouquet!
Gather Materials Needed:
To make this flower bouquet you will need:
- Flower Garden Scarf Pattern
- Curio #3 Crochet Thread in at least 4 colors
- D/3 (3.25mm) crochet hook
- Floral wires
- Additional flowers or greenery
- Mason Jar
- Lovestruck Jar Cozy Pattern
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.
