Christmas Crochet Wreath – quick and easy

Crochet Balls sewn in place on christmas wreathHello my lovelies, if you are regular follower of Lucy’s work over at Attic 24, you may of recently seen her beautiful autumn wreath.

With last years Christmas wreath now clad with flowers and framing the kitchen clock, my intention was to create a Lucy’s special to accompany the  snowflake crochet chandelier.

Alas, with time running out and a quilt yet to finish I have made a quick and easy Christmas crochet wreath alternative.

Each UK double crochet (US single) crochet stitched ball only takes around 20 minutes so the crochet ball wreath is fast to make.

The crochet ball pattern can be found over at Kate’s Greedy for Colour blog – the photos below are a step by step photo guide to assist you! Keep one yarn tail long on each ball as you will need it to sew them onto your frame.

To keep the crochet balls in place a wire florist wreath frame covered in a crochet circle really helps.

Once all your crochet balls are made (I needed 12 for my wreath).

You could even pop a Christmas decoration (like Santa Claus in his gold moon boots!) into the middle for a bit of extra festive fun!
