Tis the season to get crafting. Fra la la la la, la la la la.
For the next few weeks I am going to be participating in a self-made blogmas. What this means, is that I’ll be uploading more blog posts than usual; and I’ve been working hard to be able to publish some free patterns for you, and some other Christmas related ramblings. This is as much for you as it is for me. I am very anxious that we are rapidly approaching the end of the year, and I have so many things I want to ‘say’ before the end of 2017.
This is a special time of the year, when it seems as though we are all running around like headless chickens trying to get everything done before the Christmas Holidays so we can sit down and have a much needed break, spend time with Family, and eat ourselves silly. Although I will be referring to this series of blog posts as ‘Christmas’ blog posts; please understand that the majority of these posts are only seasonal, and relevant to our Winter break. I am not a religious person but I do love giving and sharing with friends and family; and I want to celebrate that in these posts.
This is a super-easy, super-quick pattern…
The first free pattern I have to share is for a Classic Christmas Wreath decoration. This is a super-easy, super-quick pattern that you can personalise for your tree. I have made this several times but have only just, for some reason written up the tutorial. This can be personalised to suit your Christmas tree theme and will also make a lovely gift for friends and family; not to mention ‘Secret Santas’ at work. I personally love to give homemade presents to those that I love, and something festive is sure to go down a treat.
All you need is a curtain ring, some scrap yarn, some lengths of ribbon, and if you want some extra details you can add sparkly embroidery floss and beads. These look nice when you make quite a few and make them in different shades of green – but you don’t need to make them in Green. You could try making multi coloured wreaths for more of a modern look.
I hope you enjoy making these simple, classic Christmas decorations. I would love to see how you personalise these wreaths to match your own trees and festive themes. Share on Ravelry and on Instagram using the hashtag #lovecharliecrochetdesigns
Merry Christmas – Let the festivities begin!
