A handmade Christmas.

This week has been hectic with the holidays coming. Baking, holiday book reviews, working at the bookstore, setting up the Christmas tree at the house, and all the things that make up life in general. Thursday in knitting class, I learned how to make crochet wreath pins. In all the rush, there is nothing like sitting down and making small gifts to spread the joy of giving this holiday season.


Chain 4 to 8, depending on what size you are going for. Join the chain with a slip stitch. Either double crochet or triple crochet into the center of the ring. Proceed around the ring, pulling to space it out as you go. Finish by tucking yarn into wreath and attach beads, sequins, ribbons and a pin back. A glue gun works best for the pin back.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

Happy Crocheting!
