I love to crochet flowers and leaves but I tend to have not many ideas about what to do with them...so here is one version in which I made Flower Brooches using crochet designs and hot glue.

Step 1: You Will Need:

  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks
  • fabric paint
  • mini paint palette
  • Mini paintbrush
  • 8 ply wool
  • computer with internet connection
  • 7 mm crochet hook
  • Brooch back findings

Step 2: Making Flower Rosette & Leaves

Step 3: Embellishing

  1. squeeze fabric paint onto palette
  2. use paintbrush to paint along the 'edges’ of the rosette petals
  3. use paintbrush to paint along the outside 'edges' of the crocheted leaves
  4. wait for the paint to dry

Step 4: Assemblage

  1. squeeze a strip of hot glue along a brooch back finding
  2. press on one leaf to glue it to the finding
  3. repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other leaf
  4. squeeze a blob of hot glue on the back of the rosette
  5. press the rosette to the middle of the brooch back in the middle of the leaves
  6. wait for the glue to dry
