Crochet Christmas Bulb Garland

November 21, 2013

I made this garland last year and finished it just before Christmas.  I decided to hang it over the patio door, so I just kept making bulbs until I had enough to span the door.

Crochet Christmas Bulb Garland

Crochet Christmas Bulb

I started out with a pattern for a Christmas bulb that I found online, but used just the pattern for the bulb part and made my own pattern for the base. If you look closely at the photo above, you can see that the top part is spiraled, which gives it the effect of a screw-in bulb.

Instructions:

For each bulb, follow the instructions for the ornament body from this pattern.

For each base:

  • Ch 15
  • Starting in the 2nd sc from hook, 3 sc in each chain. You’ll see it start to curl up like a corkscrew.
  • Finish off. Sew to the bulb.

To make the garland, crochet a chain and slip stitch the base of each bulb to the chain, chaining an equal amount between each bulb. Finish off the chain.

Project notes:

  • I used a 3.5mm hook instead of the 3.75mm hook called for in the bulb pattern.
  • The base and bulb are medium-weight yarn; the garland is a thinner, silver yarn.
