Instructions

Knit the cords

Using your French knitter knit a 25cm / 10″ long cord in each colour. I used green, red, and white. If you haven’t used a French knitter before, don’t worry. It’s super easy! I found a great step-by-step tutorial at instructables.com for you.

Cut the craft wire in 3 x 30cm / 12″ long pieces. Insert one in each of your little cords.

Braid your Christmas wreath

Align the three wired cords next to each other and twist the wires that peak out from the tops. Tie the three ends together so the tops of the cords stay in place.

Start braiding the cords and slightly bend them into a wreath at the same time.

Once your braided wreath is complete, twist the wires of the tops and ends of the cords together, so the wreath holds its shape. Also tie the yarn ends together and cut them short.

Make the pom poms

Make three little pom poms using the fork, one in each colour. Wrap the yarn about 30 times around the fork.

Break the yarn. Insert a new piece of yarn in between the two inner forks and tightly tie the wrapped yarn together.

Tie the pom poms around the upper middle of the wreath, forming a triangle. They should hide the wire. Make a loop to hang up your little wreath.
