Crafts for home decor: Crocheted Floral Cross Wall Art, free crochet patterns

Crochet  |  September 25th 2011  |  0 Comment
Crocheting has been my passion & addiction ever since I learned it. Probably it’s the mindless & repetitive motions that calm me down and dissolve all worries and cares of this world. Or perhaps because it’s a crafter’s ultimate form of meditation. Or MAYBE because I grew up in an environment where we breathed, slept, ate, and drank all things crocheted. No matter what caused my affinity to crocheting, I honor it and bask in its benefits.

Crafts for home decor:  Crocheted Floral Cross Wall Art, free crochet patterns

I also love the thrill of entering contests – and winning in the process. Combining these two inspired the creation of this crocheted wall art cross. And yes, it’s one of our entries during the Orange County Fair this July. Though I’m tempted to claim that I made it, I’ll give the credit to my mom who always makes time to create something new.

We started this project with the faded gold frame I bought at a garage sale for $4. I initially spray-painted it black but my hubby had a terrible allergy attack so my mother repainted it with a white Behr’s primer and paint in one. It looked much better fitted to this project because of the color change. She then put the same cloth backing material she used in hercrocheted angels wall art project.

Next is she finished the crocheted cross, then started making those crocheted flowers. She then sewed the flowers on the cross.

She used pins to mark the placement of the cross on the backing of the frame. She then glued the whole cross onto the blue cloth.

Do you want to see closely how the flowers look like?

This is the final look that we’ll submit to the Orange County Fair. Fingers crossed, we’ll get another ribbon :)
