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!
