Crochet Flower Basket Spring Tulips

Crochet Flower Basket Spring Tulips

Spring is here and soon the flowers will be blooming. It’s one of my favorite times of year. The season of renewal. This crochet flower basket is perfect for decorating for Easter. Fill it with candy or plastic eggs. It can still be used after the holiday as spring and summer home décor. Brighten up a spot on a side table or place a same size plant pot in it. Mine is going in my sunroom. It’s made with bulky yarn so it’s durable and works up fast.

Yarn I Used:

I used Lion Brand Hometown #6 bulky in “Providence Pink” and “Portland Wine”. For the green “leaves/stems”, I used Bernat Softee Chunky #6 bulky in “Forest”.
