Crochet Decorative Wreaths - Sunday 1st November 2015
s you can see from this photograph, I have crocheted a decorative wreath based on a pattern in Attic24 (May Rose Wreath). I really am pleased with the result. I purchased a large polystyrene circle from eBay very cheaply, although you can buy them in Spotlight or occasionally see them in charity shops. This particular wreath uses up scraps of yarn, so costs very little - only my time. I liked the wreath without the flowers, but got such pleasure in finding free patterns and ideas on the Internet, that I just had to try them out - the leaves were great fun. A Christmas version would be great for the front door. I also made a smaller one for my father on Poppy Day, with just poppies and poppy leaves. He was quite emotional and said it was a very thoughtful gift for a man who had fought in the war.
