I love the idea of crochet flowers because my cats like to chew any living plant or cut flowers that come into my home. Many are poisonous to cats so to avoid that situation crochet flowers are a great solution! Crochet flowers can also be great stash busters!

So many designers have made life like floral designs with crochet that you can even put them in a vase like you would do with the real thing. No water needed. No bugs wreaking havoc in the soil. Sounds like a winning combo to me!

Let’s look at some beautiful crochet flower and plant ideas you can make for your home.

This sunny daffodil cushion is perfect for a sunroom, a spring living room refresh, a guest room pillow or a window seat cushion. I can’t help but smile when I look at it!

No more waiting for spring

Waiting for spring is a flower and vase all in one pattern. Each component is separate. Vase, vase protector and flowers are all included in this very sweet flower pattern.

Lavender fields forever

I can smell the lavender from here! This fun lavender flower crochet pattern has me looking twice to see if it’s real or crochet.

The designer has styled this so realistically including vibrant green grass just like lavender fields in the wild.

Tulips from Holland?

A succulent by any other name would still be a succulent

Crochet succulents are charming and with so many shades of green available you can have a sea of them covering a shelf and not repeat a single one.
