Crochet Wreath Pins

Years ago, I learned to crochet a little but i have not done any crochet in a long time now. I ran across these little pins that were stored away in with my Christmas things and I thought I would share them. I made several of these and handed them out to family members. I just added a safety pin to the back and we all wore them as pins. They are about 3 inches in diameter. I also used some for tree ornaments. I just added an ornament hanger and hung them on the tree. You could embellish this in other way such as run a narrow ribbon through it, add jingle bell or a little holly sprig or even a tiny poinsettia.
I no longer have the instructions but I googled and came up with several on line patterns.
Here is one I found that is very similar and has a free PFD download.
Find the Free Patterns in the list of links, left side column.Then in the monthly archives, this pattern or one very similar will be listed in December 2005.

I think those are so cute! You could even make then an ornament or a decoration to a package!

I wish I could crochet!! I can't find anyone that can teach me how! (I am left handed)

This brings back so many memories of my Mom, she made ones like it and always had one on her overcoat. I havent seen this in so very long, & it made me think of her as I miss her so much during the holidays.

Thank you for always being so kind & stopping by my blog. I wish you & your family wonderful holiday wishes & a great New year.


Glad to call you friend,
