How To Make A Crochet Flower Picture | Posh Pooch Designs

How To Make A Crochet Flower Picture
By Sara Sach of
Posh Pooch Designs

I think it would be fun to make one for each season.
Summer - Sunflowers or Marigolds
Fall - Fall Leaves
Winter - Pine Trees or Poinsettias
Spring - Spring Flowers
I guess I better get some more frames.
I had this Frame from  a previous project.
 The glass had broken out, so it works great for this project.
Any 8 X 10 Frame will work.
This was such a fun project, I can hardly wait to get the other seasons done.

To Assemble Your Picture:

Plug in your Glue gun so its ready.
Arrange the stems, roses and leaves as you like, similar to the picture.
Place the flower pot on top of the stems.
When you are happy with how everything is arranged.
Hot Glue in place.

I already have plans for a Summer Flower picture.
I am thinking sunflowers!
