Crochet Christmas Tree Garland


Crochet Christmas Tree Garland

Crochet Christmas Tree Garland is a cheap, easy way to decorate the tree this year for the holiday season. My favorite thing about this Christmas crochet pattern is that it's noticeable and fun. Hanging it on your tree will grab the attention of all the guests at your holiday party, and definitely in a good way. The light green and red contrast with each other so nicely that they stand out against the dark green tree and make it look more festive than ever. Try something new this season with a fun crochet garland.

Lots of other garland patterns are ones that you make up a bunch of individual motifs and then you have to join them together with a simple chain. This one is worked across the entire length then turned and worked across the other side of the foundation chain to mirror image the first row. A neat idea and so much more gratifying to make instead of the other way around. You get to see your work unfold as you go and it's a great motivator! These are a great way to decorate your entire home, top to bottom.

This is certainly a pattern that is different. I have made a few banners through the years, but I had never thought about making garland for my Christmas tree. It gives the tree such a more polished look and I bet no one else has one just like yours. Certainly beats the store bought garland for sure.

A lot of garland projects as overly simple and leave a lot be desired. Not so with this project. I can see using the pattern for a number of projects besides the garland. If you make it shorter, join itnow you have a headband. Use bulky yarn and it would make an interesting scarf. Use twine or jute, and it would make a funky belt. I love patterns that trigger my creativity!

Wish I had found this pattern in time for Christmas this year. It looks so beautiful, and would be perfect on my handmade themed old fashioned tree. Something like this can be treasured and handed down. I might consider making it in a Bernat Christmas yarn with the metallic thread through it just to add a little sparkle.

This Crochet Christmas Tree Garland is so lovely, it added excitement and live to the otherwise drab Christmas tree. The garland was done one tone lighter than the tree which enhanced the total appearance of the Christmas tree. The garland did not in any way overpower the tree. And the red buttons that have been strategically lined up on the garland beautifully accentuated the Christmas tree ready to usher in the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas everyone!
