Crocheted "Flowers"


These crocheted "flowers" started out with these wooden beads which came in a grab bag of craft supplies from the thrift store:


I used this tutorial to crochet over them.

Then I pruned a few branches off of a bush in my front yard, stuck a little hot glue on the end, and slipped on my crocheted bead "flowers".
They now live in a vase with some dried flowers:
