Yarn Flower Bouquet
Give someone you love these special flowers that last forever.
Making The Petals: Starting with the main color of your flower, wrap the yarn around 4 fingers. The amount of times you wrap the yarn depends on how full you want your flower to be. The flowers above were wrapped 17 times.
Making The Stamen: Take a different colored yarn and wrap it around 3 fingers, 7 times. Place this piece of wrapped yarn on top of the yarn made for the petals.
Making The Stem: Take a piece of floral wire that is 12″ – 17″ and fold it in half. Open the wire slightly and place the yarn in the center of the wire and twist to hold the yarn. Next take the floral tape and wrap it around the wire.
Finishing Touches: Take the scissor and cut the loops of yarn so that the flower becomes round. Cut the stamen shorter then the rest of the yarn and cut the petals so they are even and not all different lengths. Lastly, after you’ve finished several flowers, tie a ribbon around your flowers to make a bouquet and present it to your special someone.
