This cute Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover is a free crochet pattern and is made using just single crochet stitches and worsted weight Brava yarn by WeCrochet. The tissues from the tissue box cover are pulled out from the top opening.
We are right in the middle of Christmas and decorating and enjoying the time with our family and friends. This is truly my favorite time of the year. I look forward to it every year for months. The best part is seeing all the decorations around the house while watching Christmas movies in PJ’s and drinking hot cocoa. Is there anything better? Actually there is one thing we can add as a cherry on top, and that is us crocheting while all that is happening. Right?
Crocheting Tissue Box Covers
One of my favorite crochet patterns to design are tissue box covers. As soon as you have a plain colored cover you can add anything you wish to make it special. And it is so much prettier to look at than a store-bought cubic tissue box cover.
For the Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover, I only crocheted a few items. I hot glued the belt and belt buckle to the red cover to keep it all nice and sturdy.
Crocheting for Christmas
After designing the Gingerbread Tissue Box Cover, I knew I had to create one more Christmas tissue box cover that is easy and quickly made. And since I just published a Santa Hat, I knew I needed to create a Santa Belt tissue box cover also. It fits perfectly between our Christmas decorations around the house. It also matches the Santa Belt Ornament I designed a couple of years ago perfectly.
Best Yarn for Tissue Box Covers
Since most tissue box covers are displayed for a long time in the open air in one home, it’s best to use cotton yarn so you can easily wash them. This Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover was made using Brava yarn from WeCrochet, which is 100% acrylic.
So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet this cute tissue box cover pattern.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printer-friendly pdf pattern that can be purchased at the links below for only a small fee.

Written Pattern for the Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover:
First you work on the red cover. Then you will crochet the belt and belt buckle separately.
Finally you will sew or glue all parts together easily. It will make a great and special decoration for your home.
Start with the red cover
Ch 20 with red, connect the first with the last ch to make a large loop
You will now work in continuous rounds, so be sure to use a stitch marker.
R1: *1 sc in the next 4 chs, then 3 sc in the next ch, repeat from * until the end of the round
R2-8: *1 sc in each st until you reach the corner, 3 sc in to the corner st, repeat from * until the end of the round
You should now have 80 sts in total.
Now you will crochet just single crochet stitches in each st, until you reach 26 rounds of just single crochet stitches (or you reach the bottom of the tissue box when you put the cover on top of the tissue box). Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Black Santa Belt
Using black, ch 9
R1: 1 sc in each ch, turn (8 sts)
R2: 1 sc in each st, turn (8 sts)
Repeat R2 until you have 20 inches (could be shorter or longer depending on your tension).
Now add a tip to make it look like a belt (this is optional).
R1: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in each st until the last 2 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R2: 1 sc in each st, turn
R3: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in each st until the last 2 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R4: 1 sc dec twice, turn
R5: 1 sc dec
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Using yellow (canary), ch 32, connect the first with the last ch to make a large loop
R1: *1 sc in the next 7 chs, then 3 sc in the next ch, repeat from * until the end of the round
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Gluing the Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover together
You can sew or glue the 3 pieces together. I chose to use hot glue.
First, I put the red cover over the tissue box. Then I hot glued the black belt on before gluing the yellow belt buckle on.
Using the Santa Belt Tissue Box Cover
Add your tissue box inside the cover, if you haven’t already, and then pull the tissues through the top opening.
Now you are finished and can use this cute decorative tissue box cover for the Christmas time.
