Make use of those old bud vases, and make somebody's Valentine's Day a happy one. This is especially nice for those loved ones that are housebound. Make 1 or more.

They are made from baby yarn left over from larger projects, and the leaves were recycled from old artificial flowers. Quick and easy to make. Gauge of crochet is not important for this project.

Approximate Time: Fast and easy

Supplies:

Instructions:

Start with main color Ch 4, SL ST in first Ch to form a circle.

Rnd 1: Ch 3, 29 DC in circle. Join with SL ST to top of Ch 3 (30 DC)

Rnd 2: Ch 4. DC in 1st Dc, Ch 1 * DC in next DC, Ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join with SL ST to 3rd Ch of Ch 4.

Rnd 3: Ch 3 2DC in first ch 1 space, *3DC in next Ch1 space. Repeat from * around. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Rnd 4: Using contrasting color, SC in any DC * Ch 2, SC in next DC. Repeat around; SL ST in 1st SC. Fasten off and weave ends in.

Sew a button over the center hole in the flower.

Bend the top of a stem wire to form a loop, from the back side, sew the loop to the flower behind the button. Pinch the loop tighter so that the flower cannot slip off.

Cut a piece of floral tape about 1 1/2 times as long as the wire. Starting at the loop, twist tightly and spiral to the bottom of the wire. Tear off any excess.

If you want leaves on the stem, just hold them in the desired position as you twist the floral tape, and pull the tape over them to fasten them.

If you are not familiar with floral tape, it is waxed and sort of sticky and will stick to itself to cover the wire.
