Crochet Flowers

 When this month's Sustainable Pinterest Challenge was floral, I knew I had to crochet some flowers.

The pin I used for inspiration can be found here. I followed the pattern found from the pin to make the flower part, but I did not make the stem. For the smaller flowers, I followed my crocheted flower pattern.

I had some plastic lacing that I was going to use someday for a basket. The color closely matched the vase I had. I was reminded how much of a pain it is to crochet with plastic.

It does look interesting with the vase.
Everything I used for the challenge I had on hand, except for the green vase. I rescued the vase from the clearance section for 99 cents.  You might recognize the angel from a previous Pinterest Challenge.  I say it laying on the table, and I thought I would use the floral wire to stand up the angel. 

Here is another arrangement I made using a bottle I already had.

I hope you get to check out other projects from the Sustainable Pinterest Challenge. I know I will.

  1. Aren't these the sweetest?? I truly adore how they look in the vase.

  2. What a clever way to use yarn that you already have on hand. I would never think to use plastic lacing for crocheting!

  3. How pretty are your crochet flowers, Julie! And your plastic crochet ones do indeed look quite interesting, too! They might be the start of a whole new design trend! You just never know!

  4. I had no idea you could crochet with plastic cording. It looks very unique as a flower! The yellow and coral flowers remind me of irises with their curvy petals. Very pretty!

  5. Your crochet flowers look really lovely! And I love the floral vase! Pretty!

  6. How nice to have flowers that won't wilt! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  7. Have fun crocheting more flowers! Lovely.

  8. These are so pretty! I love making the small creations with yarn. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. I love how you match together the yarn flowers and the vase. It compliments each other.
