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!

I love this....

My daughter saw this and said, "Please, Mom!" So, it looks like I'll be making one for her very soon. It is an unusual wreath but I like that!

@yarncrazy So glad you like it! It is a different style wreath, but I love that, too!

This is a pretty neat wreath. I like it because it is not very traditional and doesn't include fake trees(lol). One thing that would make it better was if at had a little extra decoration at the bottom. You know, like a Merry Christmas or something.

Great idea, @craftfanatic! I think a simple "Merry Christmas" sign would look great on this wreath.
