Holiday Wrapped Tins

Crochet these wraps for a poinsettia pot or to up-style any craft store container. We’ve shown them on tins, but you can use them however you please! Mix and match the two widths of bands with the two snowflake designs in whatever color suits your holiday

Required Supplies:

  • RED HEART® Super Saver®: 1 skein each of 505 Aruba Sea A, 316 Soft White B, 319 Cherry Red C
  • Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 4 mm [US G-6]
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch marker

Additional Supplies Needed:
4″ (10 cm) tin, spray starch (optional)

GAUGE: 8 sts and 7 rows sc = 2″ (5 cm). Snowflake Motif Version 1 = 4″ (10 cm) in diameter, Snowflake Motif Version 2 = 3½” (9 cm) in diameter. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
Finished measurements
Directions are given for Wrappers to fit a container with a 17½ (44.5 cm) circumference. Wrappers can be adjusted based on size of gift container.
Snowflake Motif 1 = 4” (10 cm) in diameter,
Snowflake Motif 2 = 3½” (9 cm) in diameter.
NOTES
– This snowflake inspired gift wrapper is a fast & easy project designed to be used as both a decorative embellishment & a securing strap for food containers as well as jars. Shown on 4” high x 3 ½” wide (10 x 8.9 cm)decorative tins.
– Snowflake motifs and strap band widths and color designs can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways. Furthermore, snowflakes can be made easily removable for use as a tree decoration by simply tying the motif onto the band, rather than sewing. Or leave the snowflake motif off entirely.
– To get a custom fit, plan your design using the dimension of your container & a gauge swatch.
– Using a tape measure wrapped all the way around the box or jar to be used record the measurement and subtract 1 – 2” (2.5 x 5.1 cm) to allow for negative ease. This will insure a tight fit.
– Determine the number of starting chains required based upon your gauge swatch & number of sts per inch compared to the container dimensions.
– Straps are worked in rows & overlapped about ½” (12.7 mm) (or more as needed) and seamed together. Add or subtract chain stitches and rows as necessary to fit own container.
– Band should fit tightly around the container to prevent slipping off.

Finishing
Middle Accent (optional)
Thread 2 strands of designated yarn onto yarn needle, weave through the holes created by working both sides of the starting ch, in the center of the finished band. Secure the yarn ends neatly on wrong side of band.
Wrap band tightly around gift container and pin ends, overlapping the rounded edge about ½” (1.3 cm) or more as needed. Sew through both layers neatly around the curved end to prevent puckers when band is stretched.
Likewise, turn the band inside out and sew the loose opposite end to the underneath side of the band. Weave in ends.
With matching color yarn, sew snowflake over the overlapped portion of the band or thread yarn through the band and the centered snowflake and tie on with a bow for easy removal for use as tree decoration.
Alternatively, leave motif off, weave yarn along center and tie in small yarn bow.
