Coffee Can Lid WreathDesigned by Julie A. Bolduc
This wreath would look wonderful anywhere you have an empty space. It is really full and and is fun to make. You can embelish it with what ever you like. I used small pointsettias and gold Lame Ribbon.
3-2.5 oz skeins Red Heart Shaded Greens yarn
Large 10 can Coffee Can Plastic Lid
Pair of scissors
Size H aluminum crochet hook
Finished Size: 12"diameter
Skill Level: Beginner
Following the inside ridge on the lid which is about 3/8" in from the outer edges, cut out a circle. Throw the circle out and keep the ring that is left over. You will be using this for your wreath.
Tie Yarn onto plastic ring. Work 80 sc in ring. Join w/slst to first sc. Fasten off. Weave ends into work.
"Leaf Sets" Make 80
Ch10, slst in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in each of the next 2 chs, hdc in next ch, sc in next ch, slst in each of the last 2 chs. Rep frombeg 4 more times, slst into the first ch made. Fasten off and tie each leaf set onto the sc on plastic ring. Trim yarn to ¼" long. No need to weave ends in as long as you leave the ¼" length. These will not show.
After you are done tying all of the leaf sets onto the wreath, decorate your wreath what ever you like. I used small poinsettias and Offray Gold Lame Ribbon both available at Wal-Mart.
