I began holiday crafting early this year! This tiny Christmas wreath is my first completed project of the season.
I’m using mine as a gift topper. I love how simple it looks on top of kraft paper and neon baker’s twine.
- Red Heart Super Saver yarn in the color Tea Leaf (You can get it here.)
- 2.75mm crochet hook (This is my favorite hook.)
- tapestry needle
- Leave long tails of yarn.
Abbreviations (US Terms)
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- hdc – half double crochet
- sc – single crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
Row 1: ch 7
Row 2: skip first ch, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sc, ch 1, sl st into same st as ch 1,
Now work on the opposite side of the starting ch,
If you’re short on time, try hot gluing each leaf together instead of stitching them.
- Stitch 3 of the leaves together in this pattern. Do this 8 times.
- Stitch together 2 groups of 3 leaves. Make sure that the leaves are slightly at an angle. You Should do this 4 times.
- Stitch 2 groups of of 6 leaves together at a slight angle. You should do this twice.
- Stitch both sets of leaves together to form a circle.
- Add embellishments! I made a few tiny pom poms with white roving wool and felted them directly onto the leaves. You can decorate with whatever you have on hand.
I can’t wait to start making more crochet gift toppers & ornaments for the holidays! If you’d like to see more Christmas crochet ideas, I’m collecting a bunch of them on this Pinterest board.
