If you’re looking for a Modern Crochet Wreath then you’ve come to the right place. I have to be honest, I often see crochet wreaths and think they are beautiful, but they wouldn’t fit my personal taste in home decor. So I got to thinking, what WOULD I have in my home? Then it hit me, THE perfect duo… PAMPAS AND CROCHET!
I went back through my extensive library of crochet videos and picked out some items that I thought would for perfectly in this project. Crochet Munchkins, Pumpkins, Simple Flowers, Leaves and an adaptation of my Crochet sunflower would do the trick!
The great thing about this project is that you can make something truly unique for you, OR if you’re stuck for ideas, I have some examples to show you.
