This is a free crochet pattern for how-to crochet my Basic 12″ Wreath Form Cover.
My mom goes to a friend’s house for Halloween every year, and each year, I make her a different home decor piece to take over as a gift. This year, she asked for a Halloween themed wreath, but because it was on Halloween, we went with a Fall Wreath instead. Stayed tuned for that tutorial! For now, here is the base so you can make your own wreath for whichever holiday or season.
If you would like to see a specific type of wreath done, drop me a line below 🙂
Behind the Scenes… Working away at one of my offices – my local Wawa. Hehe. In case you were wondering what the background is in the photos below.

20 SC by 14 Rows = 6 1/8″ wide by 3 7/8″ tall
- SC – Single Crochet (Photo Tutorial)
Chain 21. SC into the 2nd chain from the hook. (20 SC)
R2 – 130: Chain 1, turn. SC into the 1st SC, and each SC across. (20 SC)
Finishing: Cut a long tail (I cut 60″ worth) for sewing.
Weave in beginning tail, then re-thread needle with ending tail.
Optional Wreath Hanger:
Chain 43. SC into the 2nd chain, and each chain across. (42 SC)
R2: Chain 1, turn. SC into the 1st 4 SCs, chain 4, skip the next 4 SC, SC into the next 26 SC, chain 4, skip the next 4 SC, SC into the last 4 SC. (34 SC)
R3: Chain 1, turn. SC into the 1st 4 SCs, work 4 SC into the chain space, SC into the next 26 SC, work 4 SC into the next chain space, SC into the last 4 SC. (42 SC)
R4: Chain 1, turn. SC into the 1st SC, and each across. (42 SC)
Border: Chain 1, but don’t turn. SC into the side of Row 3 (this is the same stitch as the last), and into the side of Row 2, and then Row 1, work 3 SC into the next stitch – corner, working into the opposite side of the foundation chain, SC into the next 40 stitches, work 3 SC into the next stitch – corner, SC 3 into the next side, work 3 SC into the next stitch – corner, SC across into the next 40 stitches, work 3 SC into the next stitch – corner. Join to the first SC. (92 SC)
Wrap the piece around the form…
…line up the stitches, and sew the two layers together.
Once towards the end, it will look like it isn’t long enough to connect, but it will with a little stretching.
Finish sewing the sides together, then sew the beginning foundation chain stitches to the stitches from the final row.
Weave in your tail, and your wreath form cover is complete!
This is what the back of it looks like. You will see that the seam falls to the back. If it doesn’t, just twist your piece a little to make it so.
What kind of wreath will you make with yours?
