Butterfly, Flower & Leaf Crochet Pattern

Posted on Last updated: /

I love making small ornaments for embellishment, and here are the Spring motif crochet patterns of butterfly flower leaves. Since the butterfly flower leaf crochet pattern only has 2 rounds of crochet, thus, they are pretty simple and quick to make. You can use stash yarns or lace threads of various colors to crochet, the finished size depends on what kind of yarn or lace thread you used. I used lace thread and DMC Perle cotton #8 which are the stashes from my previous projects of crochet bead necklaces and lace trim handkerchiefs. The lighter / thinner the yarn or thread you use, the smaller the finished piece will be if crocheted with a matching hook size.

A butterfly flower leaf is a popular embellishment. They are great to put onto many things apart from those I have made here. Just a suggestion, the flower bouquet shown on the photo frame can be put on bags, notebook covers, etc. The next thing to do with butterfly flower leaf would be a card for mommies for the upcoming mother’s day or a greeting card for any occasion. Also, instead of clothespins & hair clips, what about making them for hair bands, earrings, necklace pendants, and rings? Not to mention the flower brooch; there are so many ways to use it… I pinned it on my dolly lampshade.

Hair clips are my daughter’s favorite, so I made a pair of flower + butterfly for her. I think the next things she would want from my crafty hands are ear-rings and hairband 🙂

  4. Plan your design, colors and quantities to make for crochet butterfly, flower and leaf ornaments.


  5. For Photo Frame:
    Cut burlap or hemp cloth and fringe the edges by removing a few warps’ and wefts’ thread.
    Position the flowers and leaves, secure them with a pin.
    Sew or glue them with hot glue. I prefer to sew because the burlap could be too weak to hold the flower in place with glue.sew crochet flower



  6. Tie a ribbon and sew it on the “stems” of the flowers and leaves.
    Position & glue the motif on the felt or photo’s plastic cover or on the frame of your photo frame.
    If you want to put the photo in the frame, position the motif away from the main display area so that it won’t block your beautiful photo. Glue some butterflies and flowers to decorate.crochet flower bouquet pattern


  7. For Clothes Pin & Hair Clips:
    Make a knot on the yarn tails at the back of the crochet flower, trim away the excess yarn but not too near to the knot. Glue the flower on the clothespin with hot glue.
    Do the same to a hair clip, hair barrette, bobby pin, hair claw, hair band, bun holder, etc…crochet clothespin flower pattern


  8. For Flower Bouquet Brooch:
    Crochet 8 flowers, sew them together from behind and minimize the appearance of stitches in front. Use similar sewing thread color to camouflage the stitches within the bouquet just in case they did show up on the front.
    Take 2 yarns from behind to the front and tie a knot to secure the “stems” in place just like a flower bouquet.crohcet pattern flower bouquet


  9. A brooch pin and a small piece of felt enough to cover the back of the pin.crochet flower brooch material


  10. Sew brooch pin to the back of the flower bouquet, again, try not to show any stitches in front.crochet flower brooch pin tutorial


  11. Cover the back of the brooch pin with a small piece of felt either by gluing or by sewing along the edges.crochet flower brooch back
