Christmas Crochet Inspiration

With summer pretty much over in the UK and the leaves turning a lovely orange colour I can now start thinking about all the crafty things I want to make for Christmas! I know, I know, It's still a good three months away but I would like to make a few crochet presents this year as I was still just a complete beginner last year. I still count myself as a beginner but I am competent enough to make a few things now that don't fall apart!

My main easy make will be scarves - for myself as well as others. I am also thinking about place mats, coasters, candle votive covers and anything of course some lovely decorations to adorn our new flat! I particularly would like to make a wreath a la Attic 24 (I love Lucy!) and my mum has been eyeing up some stocking garlands to hang over the fire place. Of course with all of this crochet making madness I will be making my biggest order to the wonderful website, Deramores. I really cannot fault them! Every order I have placed has arrived the next day, they have a massive stock selection, colours...I could go on. I have also seen a lovely seller on Instagram who is selling DK packs in various colours and she'll even put custom packs together for you! This will be great for Christmas colours as well as future projects I have in mind. Her name is Anita and her Instagram username is mycraftlife (she also has a personal account madebyanita showing off her lovely creations).

Here are some Pinterest inspiration:
