Christmas Crochet Wreath

DSC_0301

 

 

Making this wreath was really easy and relatively quick, it’s also a nice relaxing project with it being so repetitive.

To start you need a metal wreath frame (I buy mine from eBay – they’re really cheap), and a variety of green yarn.

Choose one of the yarns to wrap around the two metal rings until it’s completely covered, leaving the centre of the ring free.

Then make your crochet balls. You can make as many as you like; in a variety of different sizes or all the same size – it’s entirely dependent on how you want the finished wreath to look. I made a mix of different sizes and you can find the pattern I followed for each size bellow.

Remember to stuff your ball before you decrease so much that it becomes tricky.

Finishing off: 

To finish, attach each crochet ball to the yarn that you’ve wrapped around your wreath frame using a hot glue gun. Build up the effect by adding more balls until you’re happy with the finished product.

Then add a small length of twine doubled over and glued in place on the underside of the wreath so you can hang it up.
