Christmas Decor Collection crochet patterns

I can’t believe there are only 2 weeks left until Christmas! So now’s the perfect time to crochet up some fast and beautiful realistic ornaments and decorations, or go all out with a fabulous seasonal wreath – and my new collection has you covered, whichever you prefer…

Christmas Decor Collection crochet patterns by June Gilbank (made into a seasonal wreath)

I hope you’re as excited by this as I am?! It’s my new Christmas Decor crochet pattern collection!

Christmas Decor Sets 1-4 crochet patterns by June Gilbank

This collection includes four new seasonal pattern sets (although I’d advise you to consider picking up the complete collection!) Each Christmas Decor set includes one leafy nature pattern and one decorative pattern. The nature patterns are all realistic life-sized designs, worked in as few pieces as possible to minimise finishing. The coordinating decorative patterns will finish your arrangements with pops of fun and stylish seasonal colour.

You’ll get so much value from these patterns – each one can be used in multiple ways and you’ll be using them in your holiday decor for years to come!

  • Use individual components as Christmas tree ornaments, a pin/brooch/accessory, place settings, a personal touch on a wrapped gift, etc.
  • The components from each of the 4 pattern sets can be mixed-and-matched to assemble into a garland/swag, wreath, candle ring, etc.

Now, let’s take a look at each of the designs…

Set 1

Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Holly Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Candles

Holly: You can use this pattern to make a single holly leaf, or a triple leaf cluster (all worked continuously, as a single piece). The finishing touch is the cluster of red berries, which are, again, all worked as a single piece

Candles: This candle design includes two widths so you can make a narrow taper candle or a chunky pillar candle. Both patterns include instructions for adapting the height.

Set 2

Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Mistletoe Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Mini Baubles

Mistletoe: You can use this pattern to make a small four-leaf sprig of mistletoe, or a multi-leaf bunch (all worked continuously, as a single piece). The finishing touch is the cluster of white berries, which are, again, all worked as a single piece.

Mini Baubles: A trio of tiny baubles (small, smaller and smallest!) – make them in any colour to match your decor. You can use these mini baubles individually, or use the included instructions to assemble them in groups as a cluster or hanging ornament.

Set 3

Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Ivy Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Bow

Ivy: You can use this pattern to make a single realistic ivy leaf, or a strand of ivy (all worked continuously, as a single piece). You can hang your ivy strands horizontally or vertically, or lay them out flat. Making two strands in two shades of green and twining them together looks even more realistic.

Bow: A beautifully-shaped realistic ribbon bow. It’s made from only 3 pieces and you’ll love the clever assembly process!

Set 4

Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Poinsettia Christmas Decor Set 1 crochet pattern by June Gilbank: Bells

Poinsettia: This pattern includes instructions for making a double-layer poinsettia in red or cream, or adding a third layer in dark green (each layer is worked continuously, as a single piece, to minimise assembly).

Bells: A beautifully-shaped bell with an innovative design that’s all worked in one piece – including a tiny crocheted clapper! A pair of bells makes a beautiful ornament.

About the Patterns

  • All techniques used include tips, step-by-step photos, and/or links to my online tutorials.
  • All the flat pieces include charted stitch diagrams in addition to full written instructions, so you can follow the patterns in the way you find easiest.
  • Mix and match the pieces to make your own unique decorations!

If you’d like to make a wreath or candle ring like mine, I’ll also be releasing the pattern and instructions for the crocheted bases for my wreath/ring as a free/donationware pattern next week!

(You can buy a base if you don’t want to crochet one, but if you’d like to, why don’t you get a head start on your wreath/ring by crocheting some of the decor pieces now – you can use my photos as a guide for what to crochet or mix-and-match your own favourite pieces from the Christmas Decor Collection!)

    It’s beautiful, especially mistletoe and the candle ring setting. I think I need to fill up my balance a little 😉
    Are the bells empty inside, like real bells?

    • June said

      Yes! They’re hollow inside, apart from the tiny crocheted clapper 🙂

      • .: petrOlly :. said

        Awesome! 🙂
        Thanks for the prompt reply 🙂

    Yay! You made the Christmas candle! I had suggested it a while back! Love them all!

    • June said

      Yes! I keep a list of all the suggestions I like, even though I can’t make them all right away, so there’s always a chance I’ll be inspired to make something you suggested years ago 😉
