Crochet Summer Wreath

Is summer here?! finally ….. so I made a little crochet wreath with some flowers and I even added a little butterfly …..

Crochet your own flower wreath

If you want to make one, it’s pretty simple. All you need is a one of those white polystyrene rings and some yarn.   I wrapped my yarn around the wreath a couple of times, now you could also crochet it on, whatever suits. Then I crocheted a mix of flowers and leaves.  I placed them on the wreath with some pins, stuck them down well, you could glue but I find the pins easier.  I added a ribbon and a little felt ball and hung.

The patterns I used are as follows:-

Rose Pattern :
I used this pattern from bhooked, it’s a really simple pattern.  I changed up my hook size and sometimes I chained less or more to make the flower bigger or smaller.  I also used this pattern from Mama in a Stitch, a nice simple little deco rose pattern.

Butterfly Pattern :
I used this one from Planet Penny Gives a nice 3D effect to the butterfly

For the Floppy Daisy flowers on top, at least I think they are daisies, I used a pattern from Emma Lambs Crochet Home Book, which I reviewed hereAnd for the smaller flowers, I used another pattern from her book.

Leaves:
I always use this pattern I don’t know where I got it from, I think it was from my old crochet class.  It’s simple enough.

Chain 8, dc, *htr, 3 tr, htr, dc, chain 3 & ss to 3rd chain, then along the other side repeat from *

I added in some felt balls too along the way too.

Thats it, have you done any wreaths?

I think they give a nice touch in a room.  I want to try another one out, but this time using some felt.

Till next time !

    It’s beautiful! Love all the different flowers and the look of the yarn wrapped around the wreath. I made a crochet wreath for Christmas but the crochet bit was the part that covered the wreath, I didn’t make any extra accessories for it, I might update it this year with some crochet leaves or snowflakes.

    Looks amazing! Love the way you’ve used patterns from various books…it gives the wreath a lovely mix of crochet styles. I have been meaning to make a wreath for ages, saw a ‘vintage fabric one a little while back. Yet another project to add to my ‘to-do’ list! Thank you for linking up with #craftingismytherapy 😃

    So pretty! I love the little butterfly, think I’ll be having a go at one of them! I’ve not made a wreath before, but really like the idea of one- especially after seeing the ones Lucy at Attic 24 does, so I think a wreath might go on my to do list. X Teresa
