Fall and/or Halloween Flowers-Crochet

I'm always looking for ideas for my holiday feather tree and thought I'd Crochet Fall Flowers to use as ornaments. To turn them into Halloween Flowers I simply glued on the cute little spider and added some fun brown metallic glitter eyelash yarn.

After trying a couple different techniques I decided to sew the eyelash trim on to the first row after the flower was crocheted. I did have to spend some time with a pin pulling/picking the little pieces of glitter string through the holes though. (So it sticks out and you can see it).

These funky yarns were marked down to 99¢ at my Michaels-love them!

  Spider buttons/findings are in most craft stores and Walmart.

Very easy!

Make petals:

*Sl st next hole, 5 DC in next hole, repeat from * 4 more times.
*Sl st next hole, 4 TC then 1 DC in next hole, repeat from * 6 more times, end with sl st in last hole.
Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew the flower together.
Wrap up the flower in a circle starting with the 2 small petals.
Flip over and sew together.
