Free Crochet Christmas Accessories Patterns©

"Here's My New Free Christmas Crochet Patterns©"
Fun & Cute Christmas Crochet Accessories!
Christmas Mailbox, Christmas Polar Bear, & Christmas Candle!
By Connie Hughes Designs©
The Christmas Mailbox will be so fun for little one's to check every day...to see if
Santa's been there to leave a little surprise...and there's a fun little
Christmas Polar Bear who's super easy to make...Also I saw a lot of crochet candles online
but none of them that I saw actually light up...but this Christmas Candle does!

 This is a battery powered Flickering Tea Light!
Because this post has several different patterns, I've colored each project.
Christmas Mailbox: Red
Christmas Polar Bear: Blue
Christmas Candle: Green

This whimsical mailbox is easy to make...although it does take some time to make it...but imagine the little one's eyes light up when they see the candy cane flag in the up position...you can really delight the little one's in your life with special treats and letters from the big guy. If making it for a small child to play with, be careful with small parts and maybe leave them off entirely.

Materials used to make the Christmas Mailbox:
1 Skein of Super Saver Cherry Red Yarn/Tiny Amount of Green
(2 Sheets Darice:
7 count clear extra stiff plastic canvas
Dimensions: 12 x 18 inches)
White Rick Rack
Hot Glue
2 1" Buttons (one for the front door of box, and one for the flag)
Sewing Needle & Thread
Optional:
1 festive Button to fit on top of the 1" button
Mini Strand of Christmas Lights
Mod Podge
Small Piece of Ribbon
G Hook

Trim a piece of plastic canvas to fit along the curve and inside the fold. Sew the flap to the inside of the box like in the photo below.
Seal up one side and then put the canvas in and seal up the other side.

When the sides are done, sew up the opening.

Row 21. wk 1sc all the way around both doors, FO.
Sew the back door to the back of the mailbox. Sew the front door along the bottom only. So the door can be opened.

Sew the front end without the button on top of the mailbox. Sew the button on to the front door of the box.
Once your mailbox is done...you can decorate it however you like...I glued Christmas lights above and around the front door. First I decided where my Rick Rack was going to be put, then I hot glued my lights in place. After I was done with that I then glued my Rick Rack down. I cut out a long piece of green yarn, I dipped it into the Mod Podge using my fingers to remove the excess. I laid it out on a piece of foil to dry, making sure to give the strand some waves. Once it dries
place a small drop of hot glue to the backs of each light and attach the yarn. Do this all the way across.

To make the Wreath on the Mailbox: with Green & F Hook

Ch50 join & ch1
Row 1. 1sc in 49sts, join & ch1.
Rows 2-4. repeat row 1 and FO.
You don't have to sew it or anything because the wreath will kind of roll up on it's own. I hot glued the wreath to one side of my box, I then glued on a bow. I printed out Letters to Santa on my computer. I cut it out and cut a piece of scrap book paper using pinking scissors. Hot glued a corner of the paper to my wreath.
