Holiday Christmas Ball Wreath

Create a stunning Christmas Wreath from scratch. Most store wreaths have really skimped on the details. Most wreaths today are only half way done with the back half being flat and usually cardboard is showing. In this tutorial, we are not cutting details and providing  a true 3D wreath.

I used discount deals to make my own. The balls were half price. This craft can be expensive if you don’t plan it properly. I show you how to secure the balls and tell you what materials you will need.

Circle Center Granny Squares Free Pattern

The 2nd highest rated video in my collection is The Circle Center Granny Squares. Essentially, the granny square starts off being circular but ends up being a square. This has been used on several different patterns which include the Bumble Berry Afghan and Colour Burst Afghan Tutorials.

I think people get bored of the same old granny squares. This allows you have to some creativity but produce really nice ideas. I think Granny Squares are timeless as all that needs to change are the colours and not necessary the pattern. These and many more are featured at AllFreeCrochet.
