Crochet Wreath Tags

Super quick ~ Super easy
You can make a stack of gift tags to decorate your packages in very little time.


Tiny Crochet Wreath
I used worsted weight acrylic yarn for the white wreaths and cotton for the ecru wreaths with a G hook

chain 6
Join with slip st in 1st chain to form circle
Ch 1
15-17 (depending how tight you want your wreath) single crochets in ring 
Slip st in first sc
Finish off
Knot ends and cut away extra yarn.

Add tiny ribbon bow. (I used fabric glue but hot glue would work too)
Attach to a folded piece of card stock and you're finished :)

Instead of making tags...
Add a tiny pin to back to wear on clothing
Add a loop and hang as an ornament

Beautiful idea, Lorraine! Your wreath tags are adorable!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This is a pretty decoration/pin, Lorraine. My Mom has one in green that has a red ribbon bow, that she bought at a church fair many years ago. Now I'll be able to make a new one for her as a surprise!

Wishing you and your family a beautiful Christmas full of joys and blessings!

Hi Lorraine,

Thanks so much for stopping by. Interesting that you are familiar with York County.
