I have a fun pattern for you today!
I spoke to my mom on the phone recently and she mentioned she was feeling tired and stressed as she has been working lots of overtime. I decided she needed a little sunshine in her life so I set out to send her something fun! I thought flowers would be just the ticket! Since we are multiple states away, sending real flowers wasn't really an option so crochet ones seemed like just the thing!
I quick search brought me to this fun pattern by Naztazia
I wanted mine to be on the smaller side since I had to mail them, so I didn't follow her instructions exactly.
To make them like I did you will need:
Lion Brand 24/7 cotton in colors Ecru, Lilac, Cafe Au La, and White
Purchase all colors from Amazon using the link below:
Size F (3.75mm) Crochet Hook
You can follow the instructions for the pattern HERE
After making all 4 flowers I grabbed my floral wire and folded it in half like this:
Insert it into the center of your flower and twist the 2 ends together to secure it. I twisted my ends all the way down to the bottom just to make sure it wouldn't slide out of the flower. I then used the floral tape and starting at the top wrapped the wire all the way to the bottom. Make sure you stretch it tight as you are wrapping so it sticks to itself.
I then grabbed my white yarn and chained about 100 chains and tied it around all 4 flowers in a bow.
Thats it! SO easy and I can tell you it will brighten anyones day! My mom was so surprised and so happy! She has the bouquet sitting in her front room :)
