Locker Hook Colorful Holiday Wreaths

I love decorating for the holidays and you can certainly get creative with wreaths when using color, but it’s also wonderful to stick to traditional colors. This year, I decided to locker hook wreaths in different sizes (see below) and share the pattern with readers and fans of locker hooking. I used Color Crazy fabric and Rayon Ribbon strips on 5-Mesh Canvas. You can use these locker hooked wreaths to accent doors–absolutely charming on a guest room door for holiday guests. You can also use them as table top accents with pillar candles or votives. I also hooked a mini wreath for a door or votive and  a small ornament size and added twigs. It also makes a great accent on a gift box. There’s a free Holiday Wreath pattern on colorcrazy.com. Once you make your first wreath, you can make them in any size. Give them a try and get creative with your favorite colors and embellishments. You can also purchase a kit for the 11 1/2″W Holiday Wreath, but do it quickly! It’s available in limited quantities.

The Mini Wreath I made is 7″W and is perfect as a table top accent with a votive candle. Locker hooked in Color Crazy Pumpkin, Chartreuse, and Mulberry Wine.

I added twigs for the ornament sized wreath to give it a whimsical touch.

Below is the Holiday Wreath in progress. I like to paint the canvas just in case any of it peeks through. I also secure the edges with Quick Grip adhesive to ensure no unraveling. The edges are framed with the Color Crazy Rayon Ribbon and it’s hooked with the pre-cut Color Crazy Cotton Fabric Strips.

The new Vintage Weave fabric strips in spring colors came in and they just made me smile. The colors are gorgeous. They remind me of spring, so fresh and vintage-y in a cool retro kind of way. I just had to create something. Problem was I didn’t have that much time–mostly because I’m late in...
