Tatted Door Wreaths, and Christmas Bells 8/25 Motif Challenge

This is a pattern I did last year and I thought I would try it again,   This door wreath pattern was first started by Lady Tats last year.   The pattern is done with one shuttle with red thread and one with green,  The berries are Josephine rings.    I used Red Burst thread by Lizbeth and Green is Flora thread which I find hard to tat with.   This year I had some white on a shuttle to use up and I try it with white berries and I find it looks just as good,  either way its a nice pattern and I used the ribbon to match the berries.
The hanging part I used the colours alternatively on a chain using flipped and unfliped stitches.

These Christmas bells  this pattern is by Wanda Salmans 2007,   They were tatted using white Lizbeth thread no 20,  the middle one is plain with just a red bow at the top,   The two on the outside had seed beads added with a bow at the top.   Its a lovely pattern and quick to tat.  Link to Wanda's blog

Hope you have a lovely Day.


  1. these are beautiful Margaret, think of the white as mistletoe berries lol and your bells are fab, keep well and warm

  2. Very pretty, Margaret! I haven't been on the computer much in the past month... too busy making Christmas presents. It's great to see your Christmas motifs!

  3. Oh these are just so perfect Margaret, love them, really pretty work as always from you....Take care..xxx

  4. Both lovely Christmassy patterns.

  5. Really cute wreaths. Love the alternating colors on the hanger. Nice bells, too.

  6. I've always enjoyed that wreath pattern, and yours are very pretty. I did it once using white thread instead of the green, and that looked quite striking. I never thought to do it with white berries before, but I'm definitely going to steal that idea now!

  7. Of course you can pinch my idea and I might pinch yours doing it in white with red berries

  8. these are so stunning and detailed margaret, i especially love your wreaths ;D

    xx coops xx

  9. I missed this when I was out of town I think next year I will do bells and the trees and wreaths, these are beautiful Margaret!
