- Optional: Bells (At least 10), Sewing Needle, Thread

Fold the wire in half and twist the wire near the top. This will create the hole that can hang on a hook. Take the two ends and twist them together while bending the wire in a circular form. This will be the shape of the wreath.
Make a slip knot and rest the wire on your hook. Pull up a loop, yo and pull through. This will lock the yarn on the wire.

Thread your needle and weave the bells through the wreath going back and forth through the stitches. You may place the bells in any place and order. Fasten off.

I too thought this would be a great craft project for a senior home, but I agree with the comment below that actual wire similar to a coat hanger might not be the best option for motor skills and safety. I DO, however, love the idea of the pipe cleaners! You can easily twist several together to make the wreath ring as large as you'd like it. This is a great excuse to use that Christmas yarn the stores offer each holiday season.

I thought I could use this pattern for my senior ladies, but they had a lot of trouble negotiating around the wire itself. This is more of a craft as it uses a minimal amount of actual crochet. I can see this being a childrens craft, and using finger crochet instead of hooks. A long craft pipe cleaner might be a safer option than the suggested wire. I understand what the author is attempting, but I cant see working up this project myself.

Try and be REAL specific in your directions. Love your pattern ideas, but there are MANY things missing. Sorry, 35+ year crocheter. LOVE your ideas though. Maybe, (if you can that is) redo your patterns! You say, use wire - twist etc.... what wire, what is the 'gauge' of the wire, what wire did YOU use? Wire can mean, well .... a LOT of different types! Love this idea, but I don't want to 'figure out' how to do it. :(
