For this gingerbread garland I’ve used my previously designed patterns for the crochet gingerbread heart, which is one of my most popular Christmas designs.
Gingerbread Hearts, or Lebkuchenherzen, are popular in German celebrations, especially during Christmas time.
They are typically decorated with intricate icing designs or have some saying in the center. To imitate the icing, I embroidered my hearts and embellished them with beads and small snowflake buttons.
Crocheted garland is a wonderful easy project and it is perfect to add a handmade touch to your holiday home decoration.
I love to make garlands as to make them I can use my crochet appliques. Here are my other crochet patterns for Christmas ornaments that could be used for making garlands as well.

Brown craft clothespins
1. Make gingerbread hearts.
For my garland, I’ve made seven hearts. You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
The pattern I used for this project:
For this crochet gingerbread garland, I used free pattern for the Crochet Gingerbread Hearts.
The pattern for these crochet Gingerbread Hearts is also available as a print-friendly, styled, and advertisement-free PDF file. You can get it from my Etsy Shop.
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 crafts 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 gingerbread garland idea!
Best wishes to you and your loved ones during this Holiday Season!
