I LOVED making this spring wreath.
I’ve had a few ideas knocking around in my head for making a crocheted wreath but hadn’t got round to doing anything about it. When Mollie Makes published a wreath tutorial on their website, which ran over seven days, I thought I’d give it a go. The patterns were lovely and easy to follow and the pieces that made up the wreath were quick to make and looked so pretty.
Day one was sunflowers and heart-shaped leaves.
Day two was a small flower and more leaves.
Day three was daisies and four-leaf clovers.
Day four was a double-layered flower and holey leaf.
Day five was forget-me-nots and pom poms (yay – mini pom poms!).
And on day six, these cute bees…
I made all of the pieces and had a play round with how to place everything to work out how big a wreath I would need. Unfortunately I couldn’t buy a wreath of the right size locally so I ordered one online, then I waited for it to come. And I waited. And I waited. And then I waited some more. Finally it arrived and off I set again, making the base cover.
I positioned the pieces with pins and then secured everything with a few stitches and…
da, da, dah, the finished article…
It was so lovely to be able to complete such a cheerful project in a short space of time. And good news, the pattern is now available on Ravelry. The designer, Amanda O’Sullivan, has some great projects on her blog, so why not take a look?
I’ve got plans to make a couple of summer wreaths, an autumn and winter one.
Watch this space!
