Free crochet Christmas Tag Tutorial

free crochet Christmas tag

I’m not sure why, but in my neck of the woods, the tradition of giving Christmas cards seems to have dwindled. Maybe it’s because cards are pretty expensive, or because most people are very tech savvy and send out emails and chat messages. I guess it is quite environmentally friendly to stick to digital messages. Having said that, a beautifully written card is just lovely!

Well, just lovely for the duration of the festive season where it brightens up your mantelpiece… but what after that? If you are like me, I’m hugely sentimental and store up all my cards from birthdays and Christmases, resulting in a big box of paper and card in my roof never to be looked at again (or until the urge to spring clean strikes!)…

This free crochet Christmas tag is both pretty AND functional as the crochet wreath can be removed and hung on the Christmas tree year after year. What’s even better is that the crochet wreath only takes a few minutes to make! Simply download the template and follow the free crochet Christmas tag tutorial below.
