The Alice Wreath

Our little buddy, Alice (5), who lives next-door happily helped me make this wreath today. I thought I’d dedicate it to her…

A basic crochet chain stitch is the foundation for this wreath.

Using a plain white yarn, I crocheted a 3-yard long chain stitch strand. Using a hot glue gun, I attached the pom-poms and jingle bells and then wrapped it around a grapevine wreath.

The chain stitch is the most basic crochet stitch – you can do this! See end of this post for a link to a simple tutorial.

Once you've completed your yarn chain, glue on pom-poms and bells.

Both the bells and pom-poms are sold by the bag at craft stores for a about $2.00 – $3.00.

Wrap your decorated yarn chain around a grapevine wreath and tie the ends together to secure.

You could also use this as a garland on your tree or mantel.

    Love the Alice wreath! And she knows how to crochet (I don’t), so maybe we can make one too!
