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.

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.

These are so pretty and easy! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you, great you like them!
I made a few of these and put them on my tree with rhe intention of giving them to my mom and sister-in-law after our dinner party. As soon as they saw them on the tree they took them off and were crazy about them! We sat down and I showed them how to make one before dinner. Thank you so much for helping me spread some Christmas joy! You are a blessing!
I’m so happy to hear this! It is great to know that this little decoration idea has brought joy to people in a different part of the world!
Is there a written version of this pattern? They are so cute
Unfortunately not yet. I often wait to see how popular a video gets before taking the time to make a written pattern. This has been very popular so I will make one for next Christmas.
Love these cute little wreaths! Thank you for such clear instructions! Merry Christmas
Great that you like them! Merry Christmas!
