Fall Season Crochet Maple Wreath Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Maple Wreath

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
— Albert Camus

While crocheting the Maple Leaf Bookmark, I got the idea of making a maple wreath for my home. It is Halloween time again and the residents in my locality have already started the celebration and decorated their houses with a wreath. Even my neighbor has placed a big cream puffed wreath on her door while my door was empty.

Even my neighbor has placed a big cream puffed wreath on her door while my door was empty. I do have a Halloween wreath that I prepared last year, but I was thinking of something more than just decorating the entrance for that one particular month.

Here in North America, I find all the seasons very attractive, especially the Fall; when the trees shed leaves and everything is covered with hues of orange, red, yellow, rust, and green that brighten the environment. And I believe, only North America welcomes this season with so much pleasure.

Process:

I am always inclined to Irish Crochet pattern. They are intricate, detailed, attractive and very stylish to look. I was looking for Maple Leaf Pattern to make one for the coming Autumn season. A Maple wreath. I liked that Redheart captured that same look in their Maple Leaf Banner. I chose a multicolored yarn for giving that Autumn look.

  • Using the Irish Maple leaf pattern, I made 7 red maple leaves, 3 yellow maple leaves, and 15-16 ombre autumn maple leaves.
  • Bought the wire wreath frame, berries from the store.
  • Rearranged all the leaves around the frame and started sewing to stick.
    • You can use green paddle wire to tie them on the wreath.
  • Hanging Loop: Chain 11 around the frame at the top. Join at the beginning. Single Crochet in each chain stitch to give stability.
    • You might sew the bottom with the wire to secure the placement of the hanging loop.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Wire Wreath Frame size: 12″
  • Maple leaves length: 5″-6″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can include some green leaves too.
  • Pine cones can be added too.
  • Check out the store for more decoration ornaments.
  • You can use paddle wire to fix your leaves to the wreath frame or sew them from behind.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Home Decor Item - Crochet Christmas Wreath Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Christmas Wreath

Do you wanna build a snowman?
Come on let’s go and play
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It’s like you’ve gone away…


Winter time and the famous song from FROZEN. All you need is a hot Cocoa and tuck yourself in a warm blanket.

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is here, and so the time for big holiday plans, decorating the fir-tree, buying gifts,  preparing a long list of wishes for Santa and waiting for the gifts!!!

As a pleasant surprise, my client who had liked my Halloween wreath asked me to make a similar one for the Christmas.

Collect Pine Cones from the ground:-

Since Pine trees surround my area, it was in abundance. I collected a few similar sized pines. It was a good hunt walking around the area in search of pinecones!

Clean Pine Cones:-

I cleaned them by using this method.  And bought the wire wreath, two green shades of yarn representing different colours of leaves, pliers and green paddle wire from Jo-Ann. And the ‘Christmas Wreath’ was ready!

  • Bought the wire wreath, pliers and green paddle wire from Jo-Ann.
  • Two green shades of yarn representing different colours of leaves.

Home Decor Item - Crochet Halloween Wreath Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Halloween Wreath

BOO!!!

EEK!!!

BWA HA! HA! HA!!!

It’s Halloween time; and everywhere you can see spooky, scary and ugly witches or spiders or skeletons hanging around. The stores are filled up with pumpkin lanterns; fall leaves’ wreath, sparkling orange/black bulbs, etc.

This was my 1st Halloween in the US, and I wanted to join the celebration by decorating my house. The idea was to pick up a DIY wreath. It was a fun project, making small-sized Witches, Pumpkins, spiders, webs.

Process:

I bought a 2″ width wreath for DIY from Michaels and used up some of the brown, black, orange and white wool from my left over.

My Halloween wreath contains:

  1. pumpkins
  2. witches
  3. broom
  4. web
  5. spiders

I used the brown wool to make a dark base for the wreath.

Pumpkins:-

  1. The orange yarn was for the pumpkins. I made eight pumpkins following the instructions on the Petals to Picot- Pumpkin;
  2. The pumpkins are filled with tissue paper or napkins to make a 3D pumpkin.

Witches, Webs, Spiders:-

  1. I followed Favecrafts – Halloween wreath pattern to make witches, spiders, cobwebs.

Broom:-

  1. I picked up a few straws from my garden too. These were fallen straws from trees.
  2. Cleaned them and used these straws to make witch’s broom.
  3. Also, added a few extra cleaned straws around give the ultimate rusty and ugly look.

Assembled all the items and stitched or hooked them, using paddle wire, on the wreath. Finally, the beautiful Halloween Wreath was ready.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Wire Wreath Frame size: 12″

Optional Alterations:-

  • Pop out the eyes of spiders and pumpkins
  • Add BOO applique, instead of witches.
  • You can use wire Wreath frame instead of this craft ring.
  • Put some shining tassels or orange and black colour in the bottom.
  • Check out the store for more decoration ornaments.
  • You can use paddle wire to fix your Halloween items to the wreath frame or sew them from behind.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
