How to Make Snail Crochet Garland
- Make Snails, block all the pieces. For my garland, I’ve made seven Snails. You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
2. Making a garland.
Crochet a chain. The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. My chain is about 40” long.
You have a couple of options on how to make the garland. You can crochet a chain and join each piece evenly as you go with a slip stitch.
Also, you can crochet a chain first and then carefully sew each piece to the chain.
Or you can use small 1 inch crafts clothespins to hang pieces on as I did.
Leave about 5-7 on inches on each end for tying the garland, then arrange the pieces.
Now your garland is done!
I hope you enjoyed this crochet Heart Snails garland for Valentine’s Day!
