How To Make A Christmas Bauble Garland

Christmas bauble garland

To make a Christmas bauble garland start by gathering your materials.


To make your own Christmas bauble garland you will need baubles, curling ribbon, crochet hooks
You will need some Christmas baubles, yarn or ribbon - I used curling ribbon - and a crochet hook appropriate for your yarn.

For a single strand of curling ribbon I found my 3.5mm crochet hook was best.
I decided to use both my red and gold ribbons together which called for a 5.5 mm crochet hook.

Curling ribbon can be used for a lot more then just wrapping presents. Perfect for a crochet bauble garland.

It didn't take me long to realize my ribbons were turning into a big tangled mess. By laying them down in little boxes (a bowl would work too) I was able to wind the ribbon off the reels without tangling.

Keep curling ribbon from getting tangled by laying them in a box.

How to make your Christmas bauble garland.


Leave a long tail which you can curl later and make pretty.

To begin, crochet 8 stitches, slip stitch into the 7th stitch from the hook and slip stitch into the 8th stitch from the hook. This will give you a strong little loop to hang your garland from, I forgot to do this bit and had to add my loop later.

Crochet 25 chain stitches, add a bauble to your hook, yarn over.
Add a bauble to your crochet hook.
Pull through both the bauble loop an the loop already on your hook.

Pull through both loops to add a bauble to your crochet garland.

Then continue to crochet as normal adding baubles as you go. I crocheted 15 chain stitches between my baubles but you may want more or less depending on the size of your baubles, hook and yarn.

The best part is a rather unexpected bonus.  The baubles aren't running away and bouncing across the room any more!
