Beautiful Snowflake Wall Hanging- free crochet pattern

I have gone full on winter season ready with my Snowflake Wall Hanging- Winter Star. Check out the blog post below and get the free crochet pattern.


SNOWFLAKE WALL HANGING DESIGN PROCESS

I have fancied designig my very own crochet snowflake for some time and I have finally done it! My Winter Star Snowflake Wall Hanging is the perfect crochet item to decorate your home with. I love the fact that it is not strictly Christmas related so you can keep it in your home for longer.

I love the simplicity of my crochet snowflake as it only consists of 4 rounds. It works up super fast and you can make the whole wall hanging in a couple of days!

I have used a brand of holy to create my wall hanging. But you can use pine tree branch or even just a rustic looking wooden stick would do the trick! (see what I did there? I’m sorry…)

I love how versatile my snowflake wall hanging is because it doubles up as a door hanging too. I think it would look lovely hanging in your window as well. So, whatever part of your house you are planning to decorate, this snowflake decoration would be perfect.

Why not pin this project for later?

YARN I USED FOR MY SNOWFLAKE WALL HANGING

I used King Cole Cottonsoft DK yarn for this project. It is a lovely yarn to work with and I love that it is super white. Just the perfect snow white colour for a crochet snowflake!

It wouldn’t be a quick crochet project if you got stuck on something. Hence why I made a video tutorial for you on how to crochet snowflake.

Fasten off leaving a long tail end.

FINISHING INSTRUCTIONS

Sew in the yarn end in the middle of the snowflake.

Dilute PVA glue with a little bit of warm water into pouring cream consistency.

Cover your blocking mat/board with cling film as the PVA glue mixture gets a little messy.

Submerge the motifs into the glue mix making sure it covers and saturates the snowflake.

Gently run the motif between your fingers to squeeze out any excess, stretch to desired shape and pin to the blocking mat to dry.

Once dry, tie the snowflakes to the branch using the tail end.

Attach another piece of string to the branch on either side to be able to hang the wall hanging up.


Happy crocheting! I hope you enjoyed the pattern.
