DIY Snowflake Garland Tutorial

Here in Australia, there's no such thing as a White Christmas.  I still love the idea of it.  There's something magical about it!

Here's a quick little project for those of us dreaming of a White Christmas.


What you'll need...

Doily table cloth with lots of small crocheted circles
String, thread, or wool (approx. 2-3m)
Scissors
large needle


Cut out the circles from your doily cloth.  
(I neglected to take a pic of this step, but I think you get the idea)
Then using a large needle, thread the string through the holes in one of the tips of the crocheted circle.



So thread in one hole and out the other as pictured above.


Continue threading each crocheted circle and then space them out to your liking.
I threaded two large and then one small along my garland.
Then all you need to do is hang.

With only a week left until Christmas Eve, this is a perfect sweet little project!  A nice simple one that even the kids could do.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Very pretty! We kind of had a whit Christmas in Melbourne last year with the freak hail storm - May we never have another! The pictures I'm seeing of the white Christmas's look pretty but I couldn't imagine waking up to what is essentially a freezer on the front lawn. I'll happily take our Summer Christmas.

  4. Love snowflakes,and your garland is really pretty! Since I don't have a table cloth to use and am not very good at crocheting... Maybe I can find a tablecloth at the thrift shops for next year :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. Did you really cut up a crocheted tablecloth? I'm not sure I could do that Cass. You're really brave. I thought it was paper from the picture, which by the way is just beautiful.

    Gorgeous.

  9. Oh my - these are the prettiest crocheted snowflakes I've ever seen! I wish I was better at crocheting - I am a better knitter - but there is so much freedom with crochet like this! So gorgeous!

  10. What a delightful garland. I have been wondering what to do with doilys as I inherited a lot from my mum who passed away recently. I don't think I could actually make them, how clever you are.

    I hopped over from the Dedicated House.
