I couldn't find the 2" rings anywhere!! Finally gave up and used the "O" rings left on plastic milk or juice bottles when the lid seal is broken!! Worked just great!! I love these ornament patterns...Many thanks!

These are fantastic! I couldn't find the plastic rings when I was at acmoore so I bought some 32mm key rings and they are working great!

I recently took over a very nervous group of new crocheters. (Did I volunteer?) They desperately wanted to finish a project before Christmas. Oh dear. But I found your little design and they've almost finished theirs. I wish you could see the joy they've expressed in achieving your pattern as their first completed item.

I made rings out of duct tape. Lay a piece of green( it hides best) duct tape about 7 inches long sticky side up. Fold up about 1/8 th inch from the bottom. Roll up the I sticky section as close to 1/8 th inch onto the sticky above. Continue til you have a long snake. Join the snake into a loop with a piece of duct tape. I too had a problem finding the right size rings in the store.

I use plastic or metal plumbing washers and key rings for the center ring. you can get them cheap any hardware department

alexandria lippard said...

If you get the rings from the curtain dept they are 24 for $2.99

Luckygirl said...

I use little girl elastic s. this way you can stretch them to make the 36 sc. I have done a very similar pattern for ponytail elastic s. and I really love.this Christmas decoration. I have a hugh family so can make a set for each. Thank you.

This is a gorgeous idea for a Christmas decoration. We've featured it in our Top 10 Christmas Decorations post on our blog: http://bit.ly/1eVbjzF

Must make some for the office!

I found this pattern about two years ago and every single year I make at least a handful of these ornaments. I also use a smaller plastic ring and a 2.00 crochet hook and turned this pattern into a Christmas Wreath broach/pin. Thank you for coming up with this pattern! It's amazing!

Alyssa Fitz said...

I was wondering what the final product diameter size was??

Deanna said...

You can find plastic or metal rings online, of course, but in a pinch, go to your local hardward store and purchase "O" rings - usually in plumbing department.

Hi Doni,

I was wondering whether you would mind if I shared this pattern in a tiny facebook group I have started with a few friends...we're hoping to make a few decorations to furnish our homes for Christmas!!

Thanks

Love this pattern, thanks so much for sharing, didn't have any rings handy so I used a small pony tail holder and it worked great, although I could only get like 26 SC on it worked out fine. i am making them to out on crochet hats I make for kids with cancer and donate to the chemo units, they will love the Christmas hats with different appliques, thanks again

Connie K. said...

Thank you for sharing. I want to get right on it but having trouble finding rings.

Kathryn Bessman said...

Curtain rings is what I found

Darleeng said...

I found using the rings from the gatorade bottles and milk jugs work without having to spend any extra money..

Nathalie Duverna said...

These are cute for quick Xmas gifts or crafts with kids. Thank you

Thank you for sharing your lovely Christmas wreath pattern :-)

So, immediately following making your snowflake pattern for which, like a crazy person (who didn't want to go to the store to buy what I didn't have on hand), I used 1/2" rounds, a C (2-2.75mm) hook, and size 10 thread, I then made this one!! I only had 08 green thread but did it anyway and IT IS SO CUTE! Love it, thank you :D

Ruth Edwards said...

i use the plastic rings off of can biscuits, just cut them apart & they work great!

I don't know what was said before because, honestly, I didn't read through all the comments, but I had a few suggestions for this awesome project.

Do you know what I found was a great (and cheap!) base for these? Shower curtain rings. You can get a dozen for about $2 and they are typically 2" wide. Just be sure to use the simplest rings you can find.

ALSO, if you cut a 2" square of clear acrylic / plastic and a 2" square of white cardboard, then paste them together on 3 sides (leaving the top open), then paste THAT to the back of the ring, you can create a lovely little picture frame-ornament.

Lastly, lots of things can be used for the red ribbon/bow. I am not a good bow maker so I used cut pieces of fabric and bits of stiffened ribbon (not sure what you call it but it has wires in it and makes it much easier to keep its shape). Also, if you have little tiny baubles, you can add those around the wreath, too.

These are great!! They make up fast and easy. I have my daughter and her PTO/school workers saving them for me,,and my son's co-workers are handing him the rings off their Gatorade bottles. Planning on making as many as possible by next Christmas. Thank you!!!

Daria said...

Oh, my! I need to learn how to crochet! I love your ornament. Thank you for sharing the directions.

Susan Broomfield said...

How would you make this on a 9" metal ring? My daughter gave me some and I want to make wreaths or this on them. Thanks.
