Christmas Wall Hanging—Free Crochet Pattern

I’m so excited to share my favorite new Christmas pattern with you guys…a Christmas wall hanging! 

Disclosure. This post may contain affiliate links.

The inspiration for this wall hanging pretty much sprung out of nowhere. I knew I wanted to design one more Christmas pattern…but I wasn’t sure what.

Eventually I just started experimenting with how to make Christmas trees, and came up with the tree in this pattern. I started brainstorming what I could use it for…and that’s when I realized I could make a wall hanging!

My absolute favorite thing about this wall hanging is the fact that it is perfect for scrap yarn! Each element of the wall hanging only uses a small amount of yarn, making it great for using up scraps. 

Because there are a lot of elements to this wall hanging, you may want to consider buying the ad-free, PDF version of this pattern for easy printing. This can be found on Etsy HERE. I just want to say thank you now to everyone who decides to purchase! You put a smile on my face! 🙂

 Last thing before we get to the pattern: while you can easily use any yarn for this pattern, I used Red Heart Super Saver. This is like my “staple” yarn. It holds up great, and is perfect for decor like this!

FINISHING FOR ALL PIECES

Block finished items using steam blocking. This is super easy, and will prevent curling in the pieces. View my easy tutorial HERE.

Arrange pieces on the background, pin, and sew on. Then go back to the background and complete the last row (Row 40) to attach the stick/hanger.
