Make your own Crochet Flower Bouquet

Laura likes retro, vintage, old things. Choosing to preserve or repurpose is her dilemma - can't change your mind once started.

Crochet flowers can look delicate and lacy or striking and bold. Use your crocheted flowers to decorate other projects like sweaters, teapot cozies or purses. Crochet flowers are added to so many crafty creations. Sometimes I see them even in the Dollar Store, added to hair accessories. Of course, those are machine made crochet flowers.

You can make your own flowers in crochet. Most of the patterns are simple, especially if you have already mastered the art of the basic granny square.

I like various forms of flowers, other than living flowers, because I have allergies and asthma. I'm not allergic to many plants (luckily). Strong smells like perfume do bother me. Also, once cut flowers are in your home they begin to rot, water goes stagnant and mould grows. That is one of my big allergy and asthma problems. So, I like a variety of other options when it comes to having flowers.

Another plus with making your own flowers is choosing your favourite colours for them. I love red. Blue is not a favourite colour for me but I do love shades of blue with white. There are other colour combinations I really like but would not be able to find exactly as I like them in nature. You can create flowers in every shade of pink, orange or even green if that's what you like. Or, combine pink, purple and green in the exact shades you want. Or, create the flowers to match the room you plan to display them in.

Crochet Flowers as Brooch Bouquets?

I really like the brooch bouquets, created with sparkling jewels and formed into a floral bouquet. So I was really liking the idea of doing the same thing with crocheted flowers. Maybe this will catch on and become more popular than the jewelled bouquets. Or, maybe not. But, they are still very beautiful, if not so glittery.
