Christmas crochet wreath Ta-da!!

9 Dec

It’s time for a Ta-da!
My crocheted Christmas wreath, which now hangs on our living room door.

I followed attic 24’s patterns for the covering of the polystyrene ring and
many of the flowers and holly leaves.

The large red flowers are made following the May Rose pattern and the centre flower uses two strands of Aran weight wool crocheted together.

The mini flowers were made following the teeny tiny flowers pattern and I made a variety of colours and sizes using different hooks and thicknesses of wool. I then used red embroidery thread to stitch detail onto the white flowers.

I used three different shades of green to make the holly leaves and used coloured pins to attach them to the wreath. I also pinned them from behind to stop them flopping forward when hung. The holly berries are red glass beads which I stitched together to form a cluster of three berries.
I used the same technique to join the silver bells and then stitched these to the crocheted covering.

Finally, the cute red robin is a tree decoration from ikea which is pinned to sit in the wreath.
The mistletoe pattern can be found in a previous post.
This was so super easy to make and such creative fun as you can make as many bits and pieces as you like to decorate it.
