Last week I saw a “reflective driveway marker” and instantly knew I had to turn it into a flower for my mom for Mother’s Day! You don’t have to use a reflector stake but it is a cheap and easy way to display your flowers and help them bloom.

ALL 3 flowers and 2 leaf choices are now included in the pattern.

So…what’s included? Instructions for making 3 flowers to slip over reflectors, mirrors or other items OR they can be made as large flower appliques.

Skill Level: Beginner with basic crochet skills AND must be able to read a crochet pattern.

Time needed to complete each flower: 30-60 minutes

• Yarn: ACRYLIC yarn in choice of colors. Your flowers can be any colors you choose. Each flower will use 1-3 colors. I will be using Red Heart Super Saver in solid and variegated yarns because it holds up nicely through the weather and I like the color choices. Plus, it holds its shape well.
I would NOT suggest cotton yarn because it can disintegrate over time in the sun. I also would not choose a “soft” yarn because it could be hard to get the petals to stand out.
The flowers are designed to slip over 3-4” ROUND reflectors, either the kind on a stick for driveway markers or single ones (even the adhesive kind).

• One 3-4” reflector per flower.
• Crochet Hooks: H, I, J
• Yarn needle for weaving in ends, scissors
