Lately, I have been seeing more and more crocheted wreaths all over the internet, mostly Pinterest. It peaked my interest, and thought I would give it a go.
This year I have been into red and white, so that's what I planned for the base. I followed instructions from Repeat Crafter Me, just substituting stripes instead of a plain pattern. The yarn for the base is Red Heart Super Saver (white and cherry red). A couple years ago I purchased two full skeins of bright green mohair at a thrift store for $1.00. I had no idea what I would ever use it for. It was perfect for the Holly Jolly pattern from Attic 24. Finally, the rolled roses pattern came from Pink Milk (Red Heart Super Saver - Cherry Red). After the crocheting was complete, I went through my stash of old Christmas bits and bobs (99% of the goodies are vintage with a couple newer items to fill in the gaps) to create a Christmas vignette. Santa even twirls from the top of the wreath.
