I have a thing for yarn flowers. Like section on a Pinterest board thing. I think it's my way of coping with the fact that I've never been successful at keeping real flowers alive. I can't trust flowers to respond well to my attention, but I can trust yarn. I took this interest to a new level when I decided that I wanted to make all the "flowers" for my wedding 3 years ago...
- Inexpensive medium weight dark brown yarn (like Red Heart Super Saver)
- Medium weight green yarn, dark and light
- Yellow crochet thread (Aunt Lydia's is perfect)
- Jump Rings (use various sizes for different flower sizes but not smaller than .75" or bigger than 1.5")
- Size 5.5 Hook
- Size 1 Hook
- Floral wire, 18" pieces
