I thought I’d post this tutorial on my blog that was featured in Spotlight’s Get Creative Magazine last year in case anyone is looking for Christmas craft ideas for this year.
Mini Christmas Wreath Pattern
Here are the instructions for my version of the mini christmas wreath using curtain rings.
Wooden curtain rings – any size
green yarn (looks great with one that has a shine to it like an acrylic I used Lincraft Sport)
thin red ribbon
4.00mm crochet hook
- Tie the yarn around the curtain ring with a half knot to attach it to the ring
- slip stitch the yarn around the wooden curtain ring. For the smaller ring I made 82 slip stitches into the ring but you just need to have enough stitches around your curtain ring so that you can’t see the wooden ring anymore, then slip stitch into the top of the first stitch (it should look like the top of the ring in the above picture)
- chain 3 then skip one stitch and single crochet into the next slip stitch on the curtain ring. Continue the following pattern around the ring *2 chain then skip one stitch and single crochet into next stitch* until the end finishing with 2 chains and then a slip stitch in the first chain of your chain 3
- slip stitch into the first chain 2 space, 5 double crochets into the next chain space, slip stitch into the next chain 2 space and continue the pattern around until you meet back at the top with a slip stitch into the same chain 2 space you started at
- do 15 chains and then slip stitch it back into the bottom of the same stitch you started the chain with to make a big loop at the top of the wreath to hang it up with
- cut and pull through yarn to knot it off and then thread a tapestry needle and weave the two ends into the back of the wreath
- finish by using some thin red ribbon the thread in and out of the gaps and tie the ribbon with a bow at the bottom
I hope you like making these. They’d be cute on a christmas tree, hanging on a door, place setting for your christmas in July or Christmas table and even to decorate a wrapped gift. Let me know if you have any problems or questions with my pattern or if you end up using it I’d love to hear from you.
