Explanation of the flower:


With the yellow cotton we create a small pistil: start 4 chains and in the first make 7 double crochet (total 8). Insert the crochet into the first double crochet and close to the peanut. Cut a piece of galvanized iron wire and place it in the 2 point high of the peanut, knot with 2 turns and lock. Now with the white cotton, create a wadding, wrapping about three-fold cotton for about 40 times. Bend the cushion in half and place it under the pistil. Thread the iron wire 2 times to lock it and continue to wrap it on itself to create a small stem that will serve to place the flower in the jar at the center of the 2 large rocks. Model the cushion to create the flower and the scissors cut off the extra cotton. Create all the pebbles you need for your composition with its flowers and arrange them in the jar or in a combination with other fat plants. As you always have fun creating, hello everyone next.
