It’s funny how something as simple as a small plant can breathe new life into a dull space. You can breathe even more life into a room when you stitch colorful crochet plants and plant covers!
Plant covers slip right over those boring old store-bought pots to make them totally unique. Have a black thumb? Crochet a faux plant and you can neglect it without worry!
Ready to bring on the greenery? We bet one of these plants or plant covers would sit pretty in your home or office.

Shiny Happy Plant Pot Holder
Yes, singing “Shiny Happy People” by R.E.M. while you crochet this will probably make it work up much faster. Stretchy yarns work best for this plant holder so that it can fit snugly around it. Have any yarn with nylon in it? This is your chance to use it!

Crocheting a bonsai is as meditative as pruning it. It’s crocheted in one piece, so there’s no seaming later on. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can use non-traditional colors from your stash. Purple bonsai, anyone?

Sunflower (“Plants vs. Zombies”)
Fans of the video game “Plants vs. Zombies” will flip out over this amigurumi sunflower. Not a fan of the game? You can still crochet an indoor garden full of these fun flowers. Friends who travel frequently would appreciate these as gifts, since they don’t have time to care for the real thing.
