Candy Cane Crochet Wreath

By:

This red and white crochet wreath is adorned in candy canes and looks perfectly sweet for the holiday season.  This soft and plush wreath is great for indoors or out and is a fun way to celebrate the sweetness of Christmas.  This is a great pattern for amigurumi fans and would be a great project for a beginner crocheter who's looking for a bit of a challenge.  You could also add some glittered gum drops or sugar plums to create a wreath that's sweet and satisfying!
