Can you believe it’s almost November?! Maybe it’s just because we’re in a bit of a haze at the moment but time is just flying by. I’m so delighted to share that we welcomed our new baby Oliver almost two weeks ago now and he is just the most wonderful little chap.

I had intended to share this pattern the day before he was born but he had other ideas and I’m afraid I never got to it before he arrived! So apologies from Oliver and I that it’s taken this long but there’s still plenty of time to get you Christmas crochet on and get a Snowflake Wreath made in time for the big day. Gosh, that also means I need to get my head around Christmas shopping soon I suppose doesn’t it?!

I designed this cute Crochet Snowflake Wreath for Simply Crochet magazine and am so happy to be able to share the pattern with you for free here on the blog.

Although it may look a little tricky I promise it isn’t – there are just two different versions of snowflakes to make and the base is a complete cheat of the yarn just wrapped around it (shhhh, don’t tell anyone!).

The fun part of the making is the part where you can use glue or spray starch to stiffen the snowflakes so that they keep their shape (particularly popular with energetic toddlers I find…!).

Yarn and Materials

I used King Cole Giza which is 100% Cotton 4ply 50g/158m and works perfectly for the intricate little snowflakes.

You will need 2 balls of Glacier 21941 and 1 ball of White 2190

2mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.

PVA glue – you will need this to stiffen your snowflakes, it’s messy but loads of fun!

Foam wreath ring – 25cm diameter (you can use bigger or smaller though if you like of course and just make more or less snowflakes!)

Glue gun – to attach all the snowflakes to the wreath.

Tension and Sizing

Tension isn’t essential for this project as it really doesn’t matter how big or small your snowflakes are.

My small snowflake measured 6.5cm across when glued and the large snowflake measured 9cm across when glued but don’t worry too much if yours aren’t the same.

Glue the snowflakes

Now comes the fun part – glue the snowflakes to hold their shape! All you need to do is literally dunk them into some PVA glue and then spread them out carefully to dry. When the glue hardens you will have perfectly stiff little snowflakes to add to your wreath.

My top tips for this part is to dry them on some baking or parchment paper. They are much less likely to stick or discolour on this. Also, expect to get very messy, I tried lots of different things to avoid it but ended up just embracing the mess!

Add the snowflakes to the wreath

Once your snowflakes are nice and dry all that you need to do is add a little bit of hot glue from your glue gun to the backs of them and secure to the wreath. The layout of them is entirely up to you but I started with the larger ones at the bottom and then worked the smaller ones on the top to finish.
