If you can’t wait for Christmas, and you’ve already started making Christmas projects, you’ll be able to crank out zillions of these between now and December 25, 2017.
If you aren’t in the mood to get started on Christmas crafts yet, no worries — you can grab this pattern now, file it away in your pattern stash, and you’ll have it handy when you are ready to fire up and get going on your Christmas projects.
For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I think this is an ideal pattern to have on hand:
It doesn’t require much yarn.
If you used green yarn for any other projects lately, you may even be able to use up your green yarn scraps using this pattern.
This pattern is great for making ornaments for ornament swaps.
You can personalize the decorations you put on the wreath — try adding charms, beads, sequins, buttons, bows, pompoms or embroidery. Or keep it simple and go with the decorations suggested in the pattern — whichever you prefer.
I realize that it’s only September, and that some of you may think it’s too early for posting Christmas gift ideas. However, crafters need an earlier start than most people do — because it takes more time to make your gifts than it takes to buy them. If you get started now, you have plenty of time to make handmade Christmas gifts for all the main players on your gift list this year.
