To make a crochet carnation, you will need a few basic crochet skills and some supplies. Here's how to get started:


Worsted weight yarn in your chosen color
Crochet hook (size G or H works well)
Tapestry needle
Green floral wire (18-20 gauge)
Green floral tape
Styrofoam ball (1 inch diameter)
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Crochet the petals
To start, you will need to crochet the petals of the carnation. Begin by making a slip knot and chaining 15. Single crochet in the second chain from the hook, then continue single crocheting in each chain across. Chain one and turn.

In the second row, single crochet in each stitch across. Chain one and turn. Repeat this row until you have a total of 14 rows. Fasten off.

Repeat this process to create four more petals.

Step 2: Assemble the flower
Using a tapestry needle and a length of yarn, sew the petals together at their tips to form a circular shape. Thread the floral wire through the center of the flower and twist it to secure it in place.

Step 3: Add the stem
Cut a length of green floral tape and wrap it around the wire, starting at the base of the flower and working your way down. This will create a smooth and secure stem.

Step 4: Create the center
Using a hot glue gun, attach a small Styrofoam ball to the center of the flower. Cut several small lengths of yarn and glue them to the ball, covering it completely.

Step 5: Finish the stem
Wrap the stem with additional floral tape to create a more realistic look. You can also bend the wire to create a natural curve.

And there you have it - a beautiful crochet carnation for mom! You can make several carnations in different colors to create a bouquet or mix them with other crocheted flowers to create a stunning arrangement. Your mom will love the time and effort you put into creating this thoughtful and unique gift.
