The meaning of Christmas garlands

Garlands carry a lot of religious symbolism and are usually utilized as Advent or Christmas decoration. In the older days, garlands used to have a circular shape and meant the “infinite love of Jesus”. The circular green branches represented eternity. 

With this list of best Christmas crochet garland patterns, you can make the most meaningful decoration pieces for your home when the holiday season arrives. Be it for a religious purpose or not, they always make your home look delightful and joyous. 

How to make a Christmas crochet garland?

  • First, find a pattern, or multiple patterns, that will look good together in a garland. Then, take some measurements of the area you will be hanging it, so you will know how long your garland needs to be.
  • Next, decide how many motifs you will need and then buy the yarn to make them. Whether you’re assembling them with simple flat motifs or the more sophisticated 2-D or 3-D shaped ones, crochet garlands are usually quick to make.
  • Chances are that you will probably have the supplies you need right in your craft drawers. They don’t take much yarn.
  • Lastly, you will need a string to hang your motifs. You can either crochet a long chain with yarn or use any other leftovers of store-bought craft strings you have around.

Customizing your Christmas crochet garland patterns

The possibilities for garland customizations are endless and it’s so easy to do.

  • First, pick a pattern, or multiple patterns, to combine them all in one garland. Then decide what elements you want your garland to have. Surely, trees, stars, and snowflakes will look great together.
  • Also, Christmas ornaments, like presents, angels, Santa Claus, or other tree ornaments, are all motifs that can go together in a garland as well. 
  • Besides, you can mix your handmade motifs with other craft supplies you have around. Like I did with my 2D Christmas lights and golden jingle bells (included in the list below).
  • Finally, when you have decided what you want in your garland, gather your supplies, and make you’re the most beautiful Christmas decoration piece for your home.

Best yarns for crochet Christmas garlands

I recommend lighter weight (#2 to #4) yarns for Christmas Garlands. But remember that these are great projects for scrap yarn, so the best yarns are the leftovers you have in your craft room.

Besides, the more colorful the better, so you can even use different yarn weights, colors, and even brands, to crochet your motifs.

It’s important to keep in mind also that some patterns will call for specific yarns. Since most garlands are made of very small motifs, I would recommend you crochet a swatch before starting your final project, if your intention is to use a different yarn. 

Supplies you need for Christmas crochet garlands

For simple flat motifs garlands, you don’t need much, here is what is usually called for:

However, a few of the patterns in this list will call for stuffing fiber as well, like fiberfill, to make the 2-D or 3-D shaped ornaments. Please click the links for each pattern and check the list of materials you will need.
