I start writing this from the smug position of having finished wrapping our Christmas gifts. That done I have been working on a pink and blue Christmas wreath to match our decorations. I’ve seen a number of posts about covering Styrofoam wreathes so I struck out blindly with a ball of pink Stylecraft Life chunky I’ve had in my stash since I started knitting – I made my sister a cardigan and there was a ball left.
I crocheted an oblong using 25 stitches across and using half double crochets (US terms) and half trebles (UK terms) – I am self taught and although British, use US terms. Yes, I even confuse myself.
I then took the following ingredients:
I covered the wreath:
Sewed the lights on in a zigzag pattern, covered them with thin silver tinsel and wound blue sparkly ribbon around the wreath:
I added three bows, in purple, pink and blue, pinned on some of the stars and started to work out the position of the baubles:
I chose to put groups of baubles around the wreath and added some blue tinsel as a frame. My intention was to add more stars to the bottom right but not to cover the entire wreath, however, I think I might be finished.
