Free Crochet Christmas Candles Pattern


I have a slew of left-over yarn from various craft projects and back in December, I found this pattern online and decided to make a few. It is a great way to use up all of your smaller amounts of yarn scraps and turn that yarn into a beautiful new holiday project.

To make each one, you will need the following items: Green Yarn, Red or Orange Yarn, White or Ivory Yarn, Crochet Hook and an Empty Toilet Paper Roll. Of course you can use any yarn colors that you would like.

You can find the pattern at: http://www.crochetnmore.com/christmascandle.htm

I used left-over green, red and ivory yarn by Red Heart (tm) yarns for mine. They are super easy to make and you can whip up several of them quickly. I bet they would be great at Church Christmas Bazaars!

We made about 20 of these crochet Christmas Candles and donated them to a local nursing home and assisted living center so that they could be used to decorate the patient's rooms. They can't have breakable decorations, electrical powered ones or ones with a candle flame. These are quick & easy to make and very inexpensive! Totally perfect for the nursing home!
