Hi everyone! Wow it has been very busy here getting ready for Christmas...I love this time of year. I thought I'd give you an easy Crochet Wreath project that is quick and nice to put on presents. Enjoy!

What You Need

Size 2 (2.5mm) steel crochet hook OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
Mini pony beads (for tree and wreath)
Blunt-end yarn needle

How to Make It
With C, ch 24; join with sl st to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 42 sc in ring; join with sl st to first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, (sc in 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around -- 49 sts; join.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, (sc in 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around -- 56 sts; join.

Rnd 6: Ch 2, (sc in 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around -- 77 sts; join; fasten off.
Bow Strip
With B, ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; ch 1, turn.
Next row: Sc in 5 sc across; ch 1, turn. Rep last row until piece measures 9 inches long.
Sc evenly around all edges, working 3 sc in each corner; join to first sc; fasten off.
Knot Strip
With B, ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across -- 3 sc; ch 1, turn. Work even in sc until piece measures 1 1/2 inches; work edging around piece same as for Bow Strip.

Fold Bow Strip to form 2 sides for bow and tails. Wrap Knot Strip round bow loops and sew tog at back of bow. Sew pony beads at intervals around Wreath ring. Use piece to cut a shape from felt. Glue felt to back. Tack package ties, a hanging loop, or a pin back to the back, or adhere a magnet button.
