Intro: Crochet Your Wedding Bouquet
My daughter wanted her bouquet made of crocheted flowers. Flowers are probably one of the easiest and fastest things to crochet. The time it takes to create a bouquet will depend on the size of the bouquet you want.
Step 1: What You'll Need
Cut a styrofoam ball in half and cover it in lace (you can use a thrifted lace curtain). Hot glue the lace to the styrofoam ball.
Here is an easy flower pattern I use.
The small five petal flower (my fave) pattern is:
Make a magic ring.
Into the ring: 1SC, CH2, 2DC, CH2, 1SC, *CH2, 2DC, CH2, 1SC*, repeat from *to* 3 more times. SLP ST into ring and fasten off. Pull the ring tight. I just knot the ends on the back and cut.
CH 8. In second CH from hook, SC. In next CH 1 HDC. 1 DC in next 3 CH. In next CH, 2 HDC. In last CH 1 SC. Turn to crochet on the other side of the leaf. 1 SC in the last CH you just SC in. In next CH 1 HDC, 1 DC in next 3 CH, then one HDC in next CH and 1 SC in last CH. Slip st to end to make a point for leaf. Fasten off.
I used white ball pins to attach each flower onto the styrofoam ball.
Then I cut different types of lace and hot glued that onto the cone.
I used different weights of yarn, even embroidery thread, and hooks for the flowers to get different sizes.
This is a great heirloom to hand down and also use as a decoration!
