Valentine Flower Wreath

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I've been making crochet hearts!  They are a snap to make and can be used for all kinds of things.  I recently strung a whole bunch of brown, red, and pink ones together to make a heart garland, but sorry...I forgot to take a photo before I gave it away.  

 Today I decided that it was high time to take down the wreath on the door, which until a few days ago was hanging there to greet me everytime I came home saying, "Happy Thanksgiving!"  Aack!
I finally took it down, because I couldn't stand its teasing.  And, today, I gave it a makeover.  And voila! Spring time! Now when I walk through the door the wreath just keeps its mouth shut.


  1. are you all ready for spring or what??? those flowers are beautiful! i had a pattern for crocheted hearts and made quite a few a year ago, but they weren't easy for me, and all turned out different, so a garland would have been a little sad, though that was my dear hope. these are lovely!! i might have to give it a try...

  2. Hey D, :)
    About the hearts....I tried a few different patterns for a good heart before I found one that I liked. Here is the link. (sorry I haven't figured out how to do a link in the comment part...just copy and paste)
    It calls for a half double crochet which works well, but you can also start with a few more stitches in the first round and then use a double crochet stitch. If you give it a try let me know how it turns out!
