A Wire Floral Crochet Wreath for Summer
Wire floral wreaths have been very popular lately. Why not a crocheted version? You can use the cherry blossom style crochet flower applique pattern provided below or you can use your own favorite flower applique with this wire wreath. Use pastels to make a spring wire floral wreath or bright colors for a summer vibe. It is your choice.
Easy to Customize Floral Crochet Wreath
You can use pastels colors to make a spring wire floral wreath or bright colors for a summer vibe. It is your choice.
In this pattern I use a combination of size 4 worsted weight cotton yarn, and size 3 light weight cotton blend yarn. You can use any yarn you like for this pattern. Use cotton for a natural look or acrylic yarn. Use any size yarn you like, just remember the thicker the yarn the larger the flowers and leaves will be.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Modern Flower Crochet Wreath
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my turning chain, as a stitch.
Crocheting Around the Wire Frame
Take your grey yarn and your size H (5mm) crochet hook. Make a slip knot and put the loop on your hook. Work single crocheting onto the metal hoop by working the stitches through the center of the hoop. You will work enough stitches to completely cover the hoop. The total number of stitches will vary based on the size of your wire hoop.
Once you have made it all the way around your hoop, just fasten off and clip your yarn ends. We will cover up the yarn ends when we add the flowers.
Crochet Flower Pattern (Make 10)
Using size G (4mm) hook.
Round 1: With Warm Red, Work 10 HDC into a Magic Circle, SLST to first HDC. (10 STs)
Alternative Round 1: CH3, Work 10 HDC into the 3rd CH from the hook, SLST to first HDC.
Now change colors to the flower petal color. Do not fasten off the center color.
Round 2: With Cotton Color, CH1, *SC in next ST, Work 2 DC in next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 5 times. SLST to first SC. (15 STs)
Round 3: *CH3, Work 2DC into next ST, Work 2DC into next ST, CH3, SLST to next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 5 times. SLST to the base of first CH3. (5 petals created).
For round 3, the 2DC are worked into the DC of round 2. The SLSTs are worked into the SC of round 2.
Fasten off your flower petal color (cotton color). Now we will work a round of surface slip stitches with the center flower color (warm red). This part is optional.
Surface Slip Stitch – Take your hook and insert it into the top of a stitch from Round 1. Yarn over on the back of your work with the still attached warm red working yarn. Pull this loop through the flower. You will have two loops on your hook. Pull the first loop through the second loop on the hook. This will create a surface slip stitch.
Now insert your hook into the top of the next stitch in round one and repeat your surface slip stitch. You will work a total of 10 surface slip stitches in a circle pattern.
Once you have completed 10 surface slip stitches, remove the loop from your hook. Insert your hook from the back of your work to the front and pull the last loop to the back of your work. Fasten off your yarn and pull the yarn end all the way through the last loop to create a knot.
Crochet Leaf Pattern (Make 9)
Use Jade Frost (green) yarn and a size G (4mm) hook.
Round 1: Work 2 DC into 3rd CH from hook. DC in next CH, HDC in next 2 CH, SC in last CH. CH2, turn your work so you are working into the opposite side of the starting CH. SC in first CH, HDC in next 2 CH, DC in next CH, work 2DC in last CH. CH2 and SLST to last CH. (12 STs)
Round 2: CH1, SC into first CH2 space, Work 2SC in next ST, Work a SC in next 5 STs, (SC, CH2, SC) into CH2 space at point of leaf, SC into next 5 STs, Work 2SC into next ST. SC in CH2 space, SLST to first SC.
Fasten off. You can weave in your ends or leave them to sew leaf onto the wreath.
Assembling your Modern Flower Crochet Wreath
Now you can assemble your crochet wreath.
- First, take a piece of felt and lay it over your hoop. Use a marker to trace the outline of the hoop. This will help you position your flowers.
- Next, Position your flowers and leaves on top of the felt. Play with them to get them exactly how you want them. Now use hot glue to glue the flowers and leaves in place or use a yarn needle and the yarn ends to sew all the leaves and flowers in place.
3. Once everything is secure and in place. Carefully cut the felt so it will be hidden behind the crochet appliques.
4. Last, sew or glue your flower piece onto the crocheted metal hoop and cut out a second piece of felt to cover up the backside of your flower arrangement. The second piece of felt is optional.
Now your Modern Flower Crochet Wreath is complete and ready to be enjoyed. They work up fast and make a great gift.
