I've been wanting to crochet a miniature garden for what seems like forever! Well, at least now I can say that I did. If you are anything like me whether you love crochet, you love succulents or any plant for that matter, you just love gardens but have allergies (trust me, it sucks), then you are in the right place!
As I've mentioned, this mini garden was sitting in my mind for years and now I have brought it to life. I had so many ideas going through my head and so many more succulents I wanted to crochet to add to my garden, but I'll admit, I had to control myself. 😬
The great thing about this mini garden is that it makes you feel at home. It takes you back to your gardening days and best of all it allows you to do what you love to do all together. Bringing gardening and crochet together is my aim and this is just the beginning!
The fun thing about making a crochet garden is the simple fact that you can create them using yarn/thread colors of your choice to make it unique. See the beautiful arrangements my fellow group members have done with their succulents. Oh, you can join our crochet flower group too🥰
The best part is that you don't need much to create your own garden right at home. You can use what you have!
Here's a list of the materials I used to create this beauty:
1. Two flower pots (a small and a larger pot). I recommend 10" and 5" but you can use whatever sizes you'd prefer. It all depends on the overall size arrangement you are looking for.
2. #10 Crochet thread in the following colors. I buy my thread colors at Wool Ware House (No affiliations)
Here are my colors... you can change them up as you see fit. It all depends on the color scheme you are going for.
🌵 3 - 4 shades of green (I used Scheepjes sugar rush in the following colors:
- Silver Green
- Sage Green
- Forest Green
🌵3 Shades of Pink (you can swap out the pink for another color of your choice) This will be the focal point in the arrangement. I used:
- Powder Pink (Or light pink)
- Pink (Slightly darker)
- Fuchsia (Or hot pink)
3. Soft soil ( I used organic cactus mix just because I felt like it ☺️)
4. Accessories (You can add stones, sand, mulch etc. to make it your own).
5. Bulb Syringe (this will help keep the soil off your crochet succulents).
6. Crochet needle size 1.25 mm (You can also use 1.5 mm)
7. Silver 24 gauge and 18 gauge wires
8. Glue/ Glue Gun (you can use whatever glue works for you).
9. Light green floral tape
10. Chalks or markers to add an extra touch. (This is totally optional)
11. Fabric Stiffener (optional but recommended)
Here's the crochet flower list!
1. Spiral Crassula
2. Cubic Frost Echeveria
3. Trumpet Pinky Echeveria
4. Crown Of Thorns Euphorbia
5. Princess Pine
