Fabric Wrapped Crocheted Daisy Wreath
June 30, 2017
I made 12 daisies, but only used two for this project. I will see what to do with the other 10 later!
This is labor intensive, but for a seasoned crocheter, not too hard.
Total Time: 4 hours
- 1 Dollar Tree wreath ring (sawed in half)
- 1 size J hook
- 1 oz white, yellow, and green scrap yarn
- 1 scissors
- 1 hot glue gun
- 8 ft yellow and green ribbon
- 2 white buttons
- 8 ft scrap strips of fabric
- Daisy directions: With your hook, chain 2 and make 14 double crochets in 1st chain from hook. Join and break off. Weave in tail. Make 2 of those.
- Add your white yarn to any stitch. Chain 4 and make a single in the first chain from hook, then a half double in each of the last two stitches. Slip stitch your petal in the next stitch. Repeat around 6 more times for 7 petals. Chain 2 and join and break off. Weave in tail.
- I am sorry I forgot to take a shot of just the daisy, but you see it in the photos. To make the leaves, with your green thread, chain 5 and make a single, two doubles and a single in the last 4 chains. Chain 7 and make the same leaf, leaving the last two chains for a 'spacer'. Repeat 6 times for 7 leaves.
- Now you can fire up the hot glue gun. As you lay the leaves down, turn the daisy over and make small dots at each of the 7 petals. Carefully turn them over and place so that a white petal goes between the green leaves. Thus the spacers on the leaf directions. Glue the button onto the center of the yellow and each daisy is done.
- Someone brilliant suggested we cut our Styrofoam wreath forms in half, doubling our productivity and savings. I found it was easy but I don't suggest you do it with a steak knife. With a flat side and a serrated side, it tends to want to cut at an angel. But it worked okay for my first time. I would mark it around like I did and make sure it's steady.
- I chose some light green tweed to cut into strips and wrap around. I wanted it lighter than the petals and a bright color.
- I chose a bright ribbon to match the daisy center. Then I went with a ribbon to match the leaves to blend it all together. You may notice I went the opposite way with the ribbons. That was on purpose. You can do it the way the fabric is if you want.
- I added some ribbon for a hanger and glued on just two daisies. I then make two ribbon bows with the green and was done. I kept it kind of simple this time. I hope you N-JOY!!
