Crochet the best garlands yourself instead of using store-bought tinsel! I also have a former crochet garland tutorial. Here’s a new one!

This garland is for a Christmas tree. But in different colours you can use the streamer for a garden party or children’s birthday decor. It could also decorate your Christmas dinner table.


You find the written pattern for the garland after the video!


Video tutorial: Crochet glitter garland

Pattern for crocheted Christmas garland

What you need

  • Small amounts of glitter yarns in green, red and write
  • Bits of polyester filling or similar
  • Crochet hook to go with your yarn. I had hook 4 mm.
  • Needle for finishing off yarn ends


Using US crochet terms

ch – chain
dc – double crochet
st, sts – stitch, stitches
dc3tog – Decrease by crocheting 3 double crochets together. In each of next 3 sts, do the first 2 stages of dc, leaving the loop on the hook. When you have 4 loops, yarn-over, pull through all loops. (see video)
sl st – slip stitch


Use 2 different glitter yarns at the same time. I have changed only one of the yarns at a time for a more gradient effect.

*Chain 20. Sl st in 4th st from the hook. You will make a garland ball into this small circle.

Round 1 of the garland ball. Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 11 dc in the circle, skipping over to the other side of the chain about the middle of the dc’s. [12 dc in ring]
Round 2 of the garland ball. Ch 2 (counts as first dc), turn. Decrease to close the ball. Dc3tog 3 times. Put some filling into the almost finished ball. Dc3tog in the last 3 sts, making sure the filling stays inside the ball. Sl st in the 1st decreased st at the start of round. Ch1, sl st in 2nd decreased stitch.* [4 sts]

Repeat from * to * until your garland is long enough. Change yarn colours when desired. After the last ball, ch 20. Fasten off, weave in all yarn ends.
