A Crochet Christmas Wreath Free Easy Pattern
Crochet Christmas wreath decoration for your tree
I was looking for easy christmas decorations to crochet. and whilst looking aorund my sunroom I saw these old curtain rings, that I had planned on using them elsewhere in the house, but after a wash and scrub they still looked a bit tatty.
So instead of reusing them I just kept them thinking I could use them for something.
I had several sizes to choose from and settled on a 2 inch diameter wooden ring You can also BUY 2 inch wooden rings here on Amazon. Wooden Rings for Crafts (2.2 in, 20-Pack)*
I have used these to crochet some new festice christmas decorations.
Every one using the same basic technique of crocheting around the ring in single crochet
I have added a short video here to let you see how to croche taround a curtain ring. It really is quite easy once you have the hang of incorporating the ring into the single crochet stitch.
