Crochet stuff, Tips and How To's

Bottle cap ring ornaments

It’s July so it’s time to make a boat load of ornaments for the Christmas tree. πŸ™‚

What you need….

Yarn colors of choice.

Depending on which ornament you choose to make you will need either a F , G or I size crochet hook.

Bottle cap rings of different sizes. I have milk , soda , water and gatorade rings. you can also use key rings.

Embellishments: buttons , foam, felt

************

For all the variations you will need to single crochet ( sc) the ring first.

If you don’t know how to crochet here is a quick lesson…Put your hook ( for the project below you will need an F size hook) through the bottle ring, Β Place yarn over hook. The yarn attached to the ball /skein is your working yarn. Pull hook through ring , yarn over and pull through loop on hook. Repeat until you reach the first stitch. ( for this project 20 single crochets are needed) slip stitch ( slst) to the first stitch.( insert hook into the first stitch made and pull through. Don’t yarn over, just pull your hook through the loop on your hook.) Cut yarn, leaving few inches, pull yarn and weave in.

Todays project is an easy one…

It’s a simple wreath. I made these as part of a ornament swap.

I used a milk ring for the large wreath and a soda bottle ring fort the small one, 2 buttons( but you can add as many as you want) and 2 shades of green yarn ( Red Heart super saver – paddy green and spring green.)

You will need to single crochet (sc) all the way around the ring as I mentioned above.

With a tapestry needle weave in the ends. With another color yarn, attach to the back if the wreath under a few loops. Either sew or super glue button (s) to front .

 

Bonus project:IMG_3586

Like the wreath, sc around the ring. slip stitch to the first stitch. Cut yarn, weave in ends. With grey, (wrong way facing you ) chain 2 to any sc. sc in same stitch and next 2 stitches. turn and chain 25 .sc in same stitch and in next 2 stitches. cut yarn and weave in ends.

 

 

More projects will be posted throughout the week.
