DIY Crocheted Summer Wreath

Updated: Feb 17

This was not the summer that any of us were expecting, but it's been nice to be able to find joy in the small things. One of the things that has brought us joy is the wreath that I made for our front door, so we decided to write up a short tutorial so that you can make one too!


This isn't a pattern, but a recipe. Feel free to make any substitutions that make you happy and be sure to tag us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook @erieliknits!


Materials:

  • Wreath frame

  • Faux flowers and greenery

  • Size 4 (worsted or aran weight) yarn in your desired amount of colors

  • We used one main color (cream) and six contrast colors: red, blue, green, purple, orange, and yellow

  • Size D crochet hook

  • Scissors

  • Darning needle

  • Duct tape

  • Hot glue gun

Begin by making 30 three-row granny squares and weaving in the ends. We opted to make the last row of every square the same color.

several small multi-colored granny squares lined up side-by-side to determine a good order to sew them in.

Slip stitch seam all of the granny squares together through the back loops, creating a rectangle that is 15 squares wide and 2 squares tall.


the multi-colored granny squares seamed together.

Using some extra yarn and your darning needle, wrap the granny square fabric that you have made around the wreath frame and lace it together.


If, like with our wreath, there is still an uncovered portion of your frame, cover it with duct tape.


the granny square fabric has been sewn around a circular wreath shape, and fake sunflowers and leaves are waiting to be hot-glued onto the wreath.

Now, take the faux flowers and greenery and hot glue them to your wreath, covering the duct tape.


the finished wreath: fake sunflowers are clustered at the bottom, fake fern leaves come out from the sunflowers, and the multi-colored granny square fabric covers the rest of the wreath.

Tah-dah!
