Do you have a lot of left-over yarn? You could use it to create these mini wreaths for your own home or for friends!
I have always loved all kinds of wreaths at any time of the year. But I love them most at Christmas time. An important part of the time when I was creating things to sell at craft fairs in Northern Ireland were wreaths. Then I sewed them, lately I have moved to crocheted and knitted wreaths. This new tiny wreath is great as a Christmas tree decoration. I’m also thinking that I might give these instead of cards to friends and family this year. I have so much left-over yarn that would be ideal for making each one different.
You can enlarge the images above to see the wreaths in detail.
A wreath made using DK weight yarn and a crochet hook 3.5 mm is about 6 cm (2½ in) in diameter. The glitter yarn wreath pictured here is a bit smaller because the yarn is finer. Here is an example of glitter yarn suitable for the wreaths: amzn.to/2SolqHE If you don’t have any scrap yarn, you can also get a package of mini balls of yarn in different colours: amzn.to/2B1zP5K
To make the wreath, you first crochet three strips in different colours and plait them together and make into a ring. Then the bow is made in three simple parts, all using only chain and single crochet. You can mix different yarns but it works best to have the yarns the same weight.
