Crochet Windsock

Something I made a couple years back to add to my patio... the wind sock is made from an ice tea can or you can use an oatmeal box too....

Here is what you will need:
Crocheted Windsock
  • one small round can [oatmeal or ice tea]
  • yarn 4ply WW any color [I used a tan]
  • some felt of colors you will use to make your designs [I made a house and birds and used blue,red,dark green, brown, yellow,blue, tan, black
  • button flowers
  • pre-cut flowers
  • buttons for embellishments
  • alpha beads
  • ribbon
  • glue
  • plastic tablecloth cut in 2" strips to the length you wish it to be [I made mine 5' long

  1. Clean out your can and leave empty
  2. **crochet a round see directions below
  3. cut tablecloth into long strips 2" wide x 5' long
  4. glue on precute felt flowers [JoAnns or any craft store]
  5. cut out your bird and bird house from the felt and then glue onto can
  6. cut out a tree from the brown and green felt and glue on can as shown in picture
  7. glue on the buttons onto the tree to make your design
  8. cut out bird house with red and beige felt and glue on other side of tree[see photo for pieces to cut] I made a round hole with black felt and cut a few yellow squiggly pieces to glue on the foof area, you can make it any way you want, personalize it and add a name on the other side, gluing alpha beads on a ribbon
  9. attach cut plastic to bottom of can by tieing a knot in every 2 stitch,
  10. cut strips to desired length

  11. See how it moves when the wind hits it. This is an easy project and one that is fun and can be embellished any way you like. Try your artist abilities and make yours and be sure to post and link to your designs so I can see what you came up with!
