Hot Pink Crochet Flowers Altered Picture Frame


I wanted to try to use the crochet flowers to decorate the picture frame to see how it would turn out.  I used gray paper on the frame so for this particular frame it was hard to coordinate with other color.  I had tried several different colors only this hot pink one really stand out.

 For these 3 roses the inspiration was from here.  I did my petals different from her tutorial.  I like my flower petals round and fully looking so I added at least 2 more double crochet stitches to each petal.  The pearl swirl was from Want2Scrap.  I bought it at the convention 3 years ago.

 Crochet leaves tutorial here.

Tutorial for this rose is here. However, I added a few extra double crochet (dc) stitches to each petal and added even more dc stitched to the last round.

Have a wonderful day!
