Crochet Christmas Wreath

I can share my most recent crochet project with you at last- it was a surprise gift for my mum but she has it now so it’s not a secret anymore!

I made her a lovely Xmas wreath inspired by Lucy’s winter wreath- see here at Attic24.   

I covered a polystyrene base ( from hobby raft) with a stripy base – blues for the sky & greens & red for the garden – just a wide strip of single crochet stripes stitched together at the back.   

Then I made a few baubles & pine cones, a poinsettia flower & holly leaves, together with a few ready made pom-poms, baubles & tiny bells, all stitched into the base.  I embroidered stars onto the sky in silver thread & a red ribbon to hang it by. The little robin is a perfect addition I think. 

   
 
A lovely project if quite fiddly & time consuming but fun & very effective. My mum loves it!

Leaves & bauble patterns from Lucy at attic24. Poinsettia from  The daintydaisy blogspot & pine cones from PlanetJune

Might need to make one of these for myself…….next year:)
