EASY 15-Minute Christmas Tree Garland! Free Crochet Pattern!
Let's Crochet A Christmas Tree Garland In Just 15 Minutes! This Is EASY!!
Last Christmas, when I went through my decorations I decided my ancient tree garlands looked a bit... tired. And there was an undecorated brand new Christmas tree in my living room calling to me for sparkling up! I was sifting through my yarn basket looking for some pick-up work, and I picked up a brand new skein of white Spark-A-Doodle I had just bought. I told my husband, "This yarn is cute enough to string on the tree!"
I decided white, silver and gold would be nice so I chose a couple of other yarns and started making a chain. It was adorable! So I sat and made about 8 feet of chain in about as many minutes. I put it on my tree, and even got my son and his lovely girlfriend into the act - she "finger knits" which is really crocheting chains, and she sat for awhile making me another one in another color! John wound the garland as she worked.
You can make this even if you don't know how to crochet. All you have to learn is how to chain stitch and that is very easy to do. You can learn in a few minutes by watching one of the YouTube video tutorials below!
If you have kids helping you decorate the tree, this would be a perfect activity for them! It'll keep them entertained for a good while, and they may even find interest in a new craft, learning how to crochet!
