Easy Projects to Add Color to Your Decor

Sunflower motifs can lend a whimsical touch to all sorts of crochet projects. The sunflower is a versatile theme that can be added to wearables, kitchen items, and decor accents.

Although they’re a popular choice for summer or autumn decorations, sunflowers are pretty enough to display year-round. They can be incorporated into wreaths or garlands. You could make them into squares to form a blanket or tote bag. Or even use them for practical items like kitchen towels, placemats, and coasters.

Which Yarn is Best for Crocheted Sunflowers?

The best yarn to use depends on how you will use your sunflower project. The patterns in this selection represent a wide variety of yarn weights and fiber content. So if you’re trying to use up your stash, you should be able to find pattern that’s appropriate for yarns you already have.

In general, these patterns call for one of the following:

  • Acrylic Yarn: Acrylic yarn comes in a huge variety of colors and textures. It’s an economical choice for items like blankets and tote bags, and certain brands can be very soft. It’s also usually machine-washable and easy to care for.
  • Cotton Yarn: When you’re making kitchen towels or coasters, cotton (or at least cotton blend) yarn is a must. This is because you need a fiber that can absorb moisture.

Choosing Colors for your Crochet Sunflower Project

We’re all familiar with the classic sunflower colors of brown and golden yellow, along with green leaves. But many of these projects—specifically the granny squares—also use a background color. This is where you can get creative!

For my sunflower grannies, I used rainbow of different colors. Other projects, like the sunflower tote bag, feature the sunflowers against a cream background, which gives the project a fresh, beachy look.

To make your sunflowers pop from the background, try a complementary color, like purple or blue, or dark color such as a black or brown yarn. Or for a more relaxed feel, you could border them with earthy browns and greens.

Most importantly, choose a color scheme that you love and that will make you smile each time your admire your project!

Happy Crocheting!
