Crocheted garlands are wonderful easy projects and perfect to add a handmade touch to you holiday home decor.
Crochet Christmas garlands will look great on your Christmas tree, fireplace, windows, above the door, or across the wall!
For my garland, I used five of my Christmas crochet appliques. My garland is just an example and inspiration on what you can do.
You don’t need to be limited by the designs I used. Feel free to use any other of your favorite Christmas themed appliques.
Here are my other Christmas crochet patterns that could be used for making garlands as well!

Materials I used:
The Christmas trees are made from crochet cotton thread size 10 and Santa, reindeer, snowman and unicorn – from light weight # 3 cotton yarn.
You can experiment with different yarn weight to make your pieces larger.
Patterns I used:
For this crochet Christmas garland I used the following patterns, which are available on this website for free:
These patterns are also available as a print-friendly, styled and advertisement-free PDF files. You can get them from my Etsy Shop.
- Crochet all pieces.
For my garland, I’ve made seven appliques. You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
2. Making a garland.
You have a couple of options on how to make the garland. One option is to crochet a chain and join each piece to the chain as you go with a slip stitch evenly.
You can also crochet a chain first and then carefully sew each piece to the string.
Also, you can use small 1 inch craft clothespins to hang pieces as I did.
The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. Leave on each end about 5-7 inches for tying the garland, then arrange the pieces.
I hope you enjoyed this crochet Christmas garland idea!
