Materials:
  • 6.0 mm J crochet hook  
  • Worsted weight yarn in fun, festive colors (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Grenadine" "Perfect Pink" "Bright Yellow" and "Minty"
  • Tapestry needle 
  • Scissors 

Finished Sizing:
  • Large Circle is about 2.5 inches wide
  • Small Circle is about 1.5 inches wide
  • Garland can be any length you like by adding more or less circles.


Note: Try to make a mix of both large and small circles, mixing up the colors too.

Instructions for Small Circle:

Ch 4, join in the furthest ch from the hook with a sl st to create a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc into the center of the ring. Join to close the round with a sl st in the topmost ch and fasten off.

Instructions for Large Circle:

Ch 4, join in the furthest ch from the hook with a sl st to create a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc into the center of the ring. Join to close the round with a sl st in the topmost ch.

Round 2: Ch 3, then work a dc into the stitch at the base of the chain. Work 2 dc in each stitch all the way around the circle. Join to close the round with a sl st in the topmost ch cut the yarn and fasten off.

Assembly & Finishing:
  • Weave in all ends of all of the circles.
  • Lay the circles out to plan their order before stringing.
  • Using a matching piece of yarn and tapestry needle, string the circles up, mixing up the colors and sizes for the best confetti look.
  • When stringing then be sure to take the needle through the back loops only and try to string them along the top part of the circle--this will help it from being too top heavy and drooping forward.
  • You can snug them up so they are touching or kind of spread them out a bit...totally your choice!
  • When you're done, tie your garland up, hang on a nail, hook, etc.
