Welcome friends! Can you believe that we are more than halfway through the year?! That means that Christmas is less than 6 months away,
and it means it’s time for Christmas in July! Today I am going to share a very easy Christmas ornament that you can make and customize to fit your Christmas color palette or theme. This adorable DIY mini wreath shaped Christmas ornament is made by crocheting macrame cord, but don’t worry! No previous crochet or macrame experience is needed for this project. Let me show you how easy it is! Mini Macrame Wreath Ornament Supplies:
macrame cord- I used this
3mm white macrame cord.
I/9 5.25mm crochet hook or larger- If you would like to purchase more than just one hook, this pack contains a lighted crochet hook with 9 interchangeable hook heads with a case and stitch markers. wood rings- I got a 6 pack at Dollar Tree, but here’s a cheap
100 pack of assorted sizes from Amazon.
thin ribbon other embellishments like Christmas greenery, tiny Christmas shaped objects like snowflakes, etc.

Crochet Macrame Cord onto Wood Ring
Don’t freak out if you’re not a crocheter! This is an easy project that anyone can do. This was my very first macrame project too, and it was a breeze. I will admit that I learned to crochet as a little girl, but never anything harder than triple chaining! So don’t give up on this project yet! Let me show you how easy it is.
If you need to see it in action to really get it, I will have one at the end of the post.
To start to cover the mini wreath ornament, bend a section the end of your macrame cord, creating a U-shape with about 3″ or more past the bend, and place it on the wood ring. You want just enough of the U, which we’ll now call a loop, above the ring for the crochet hook to slide through. The loop should fit from the center of the ring at the back through to the front.
Finish the Macrame Step
Now it’s time to finish the crocheting part of the DIY mini wreath ornament.
When you’re back at the starting point, place the crochet hook through the top two loops that are parallel to each other at the top of the start of the mini wreath.
Embellish the Mini Wreath Ornament
There are endless ways to embellish these wreath shaped ornaments: ribbon, Christmas shapes, greenery, tiny ornaments, etc. I couldn’t get to my stored Christmas craft supplies, like little wood shapes, so I used ribbon, greenery, and seashells that I had on hand.
Make tiny bows with thin ribbon. I used 5/8″ Christmas ribbon for a few. I also added some greenery to a few, which you will see in the tutorial video.
Here’s a video tutorial that may help those who are more visual learners. After all, we all learn best differently. I’m the weirdo that needs to read it to do it!
If you need to see anything at a slower speed, use the video controls to play at 1/2 speed or slower.
That’s it! Your mini wreath ornament made with macrame cord is complete!
