This past Mother’s Day, I decided to make a special gift for all the mothers I knew. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with flowers. This crocheted orchid was not nearly as hard as it seemed and everyone adored their gifts.
The tricky part of this project is the super-thin yarn and incorporating wire in the petals so they hold their shape.
For this project I used:
- Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread – Superfine in White and Yellow
- Size I (1.75) Crochet Hook
- 20 Gauge Beading Wire
- Green Floral Tape
- Bambo Skewer (to hold the flower up)
- 6″ Terra Cotta Pot
- 1 Block of Green Foam (fills bottom of pot and holds the skewer and wire in place)
- Panacea Moss Roll
I wish I had the pattern to post here, but I learned this project from a video. I’ve posted the links below.
