Give the gift of flowers that will last! These crochet flowers glued to canvas are perfect for Mother’s Day or as a Teacher Appreciation gift! And the bonus is that this project really doesn’t take more than 1-2 hours! I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton yarn because of the rich, bright colors and smooth texture. This yarn doesn’t fuzz up like the acrylic tends to do.
Here is what you will need:
– Lily Sugar ‘n Cream yarn in Hot Green, Hot Pink, Sunshine, Soft Violet, Rose Pink, and Beach Glass. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Mason Jar Zipper Bags -Size Small. I purchased mine at Michaels Craft Store but you can also purchase them (in 3 different sizes) HERE on Amazon.
– 9 x 12 inch Canvas panel. Mine was a flat piece of canvas but the ones that are back stapled to a frame would work too! THIS is the one I used.
– Hot Glue Gun
– Tapestry needle
– White 12 x 15 inch frame (optional)
Mason Jar Zipper Pouches were located at the checkout counter of my local Michaels Craft Store!
The flower pattern is pretty simple! Not like your typical layered crochet flower where you re-join your yarn on the underneath side. With this flower you will actually crochet the outer petals first and then continue on (without clipping your yarn!) and crochet the middle petals.
Crochet Flower Pattern with Two Petal Layers:
Starting with yellow,
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 8 SC in ring, join, chain 1 (8 SC)
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around (16 SC)
Join with petal color (purple in the below picture tutorial)
Round 3: chain 3 + 3 DC + chain 3 in first stitch and join with slip stitch to same stitch (you have made your first petal), skip one stitch, slip stitch to next stitch, *chain 3 + 3 DC + chain 3 and join with slip stitch, skip a stitch, slip stitch to next, repeat from * until you have made 8 petals.
Do not fasten off.
Round 4: Now working into the yellow spaces from round 2 , slip stitch to join over first yellow space, *chain 2 + 2 HDC + chain 2 and slip stitch to join in same space, slip stitch into next space, repeat from * until you have created 8 smaller petals. See picture tutorial below for visual help.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
You can find the CROCHET LEAF PATTERN HERE.
The stems are made by chaining 21, 36, or anything other length you desire, and then slip stitching in the second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Lay everything out in a nice arrangement on the canvas and then hot glue it on! I would start by gluing down the mason jar pouch (just a little glue around the back edges will do) and then the stems. Followed by the flowers and then the leaves. Keep it 3-dimensional by allowing the leaves to stick out.
You have the option to mount it on a frame to hang or display.
Note: you will need to remove the glass of the frame.
I was just wondering where you got your white 12 x 15 frame from? I can’t find them anywhere.
Thanks for sharing this! It will be our end of the year teacher gift along with a “Thanks for helping me bloom” card.
It’s always great to find a simple, go to pattern for flowers and leaves. I’ll be keeping this pattern for reference on future projects.
Keep up the beautiful work!
This is an absolutely beautiful gift!!! I must be a really slow crocheter cuz I’m just not sure I could get it done by Sunday LOL. Thanks for the idea.

I love this! I went to Michael’s and found the bags and canvas. I’m working on three of these for the moms in my family.
Emily Gavin says
What department did you find the bags in? I went to one of my Michaels stores and they had no idea what these bags were even with the photo. Thanks
Linda W. says
They were in the front of the store by the checkout lane.
Thanks for this cute pattern and idea! Really disappointed in our Michaels because they don’t carry the bags in store or even online, so thanks for sharing the amazon link!
Kathy Buckner says
I just want to thank you for this fantastic idea! I already had some flowers a friend’s grandmother had made. She wanted me to do something with them, but i was at a loss as to what to do with them. This was perfect!
Mandy C. says
When gluing the bag on, did the stems go inside the bag or behind it? I’m having trouble getting the stems to go inside the bag and lay nicely. Did you cut the bag in half and then glue on top?
Shirley Cummings says
I,too, am wondering about how you did the bag. Do you leave it flat and put the stems behind it; or did you open the bag and put them inside the bag? If you leave it flat, wouldn’t you have to kind of “puff” out the bag, when you glue it on? I dont’ want to do anything until I know for sure, cuz I don’t want glue where it shouldn’t be.
Shirley Cummings says
Is anyone commenting on these posts about how to do the bag? Would like to hear from someone who has done this.

Sharing some cool crochet flower patterns I came across
Jacqueline Strand says
I absolutely love this and will use your idea over&over many times.
Dana Benedetti says
It looks like a few of us have the same question about the bag. Did you cut the bag and glue half of it to the background? Did you slip the stems inside of the intact bag but glue them down inside the bag? Are the stems behind the whole bag? Would love to make this but am afraid I’ll mess up the bag!

Wow really amazing, I love it and I love crochet, by the way i’ll try do this pattern.
PLEASE answer the questions regarding placing the stems – in the baggie, under it…where do the go. This ia a very Important part of the project and without it, the pattern is incomplete.
