I love a traditional cedar Christams wreath but I thought this Holiday Yarn Wreath would be a modern alternative. Add just a bow and it would make a beautiful wreath for your front door in any season. I embellished my crochet wreath with a few pinecones but feel free to add any decorative ornaments or greenery to your Christmas Wreath. It’s the perfect project to use a little of your own creativity.
You’ll be excited to see how easy this Christmas crochet pattern is and how inexpensive the supplies are. I was picking up odds and ends at the dollar store and found two inexpensive wreath rings. An 18″ and a 12″ size. They inspired me to come up with a new crochet wreath pattern.

The wreath is made by working 2 strands of yarn and slip-stitching them around a wreath ring. To create a wide 6″ section use 2 wreath sizes. Tie together so that the small ring fits evenly inside the large ring. I used an 18″ and 12″ wreath. Gold or wooden hoops would work for this design.

Holiday Yarn Wreath Pattern
Place the wreaths on a flat surface with the smaller wreath placed evenly inside the larger wreath. Use any style of a wreath, 12″ and 18″ preferred. Cut 4 strands of yarn long enough to tie the wreaths together. Tie wreaths together evenly spacing the 4 strands of yarn.
Combine 2 strands of Super Bulky weight yarn. Make a sl knot and place it on the crochet hook. Hold the hook at the top of the larger wreath ring. Hold both strands of yarn and wrap yarn down the back of the ring, come through the opening of the smaller ring and pull the yarn up across the front of the rings and sl st through the yarn on the hook. Make sure the yarn is taught and not too loose.
So that the yarn doesn’t have to pull through the wreath ring you will alternate the wrap. Hold both strands of yarn and wrap the yarn down the front of the ring, go through the opening of the smaller ring and pull the yarn up the back of the rings and sl st through the yarn on the hook. Make sure the yarn is taught and not too loose.
With both strands of yarn and wrap yarn down the back of the ring, come through the opening of the smaller ring and pull the yarn up across the front of the rings and sl st through the yarn on the hook.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 covering the wreath. Push yarn together as you go.
When the wreath is fully covered fasten off and weave in yarn tails.
Cut a 70″ piece of burlap garland. Create a large loop big enough to layer under the bow. Place the top of the loop on the x of the loop. Use wire or string to tie the centre of the bow.
Use a piece of string and tie together three pinecone ornaments.
Place the decorative bow on top of the burlap and tie ornaments to the bows. Use the wire on the decorative bow to fasten to the wreath.
