Easy Crochet Christmas Tree Ornament

dsc_3853-1

I’m one of those people who starts celebrating the holidays come September 1st. My home is now garnished with Fall decorations, our humidifier is misting a delicate pumpkin spice scent, and YES… I’m already crocheting for Christmas! I think the holiday season might just be every crocheter’s favorite time of year. I mean, what better time to curl up on the couch with your hook and yarn?

I recently finished this cute little crochet Christmas tree ornament. The tree pattern hails from Fab Art DIY in their post, How to DIY Crochet Christmas Tree Ornament. They provide only a picture pattern, but it’s simple enough to follow and requires only a few simple stitches: single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. It’s a great pattern for beginners.

You’ll want to use a lightweight yarn (size 3), with a size F hook (3.5mm). The actual dimensions measure about 5 inches tall and 4 inches at the widest part of the tree. Work up two trees, one green and one white, then add some simple accent stitches in the opposite color to give them some depth.

Check out this post for a tutorial on how to crochet accent stitches on top of your work, Crochet Accent Stitches.

Next, block the trees to the same size. Once dry, sew the two pieces together with single crochet stitch, leaving the bottom corner open. Stuff the tree with soft pillow stuffing to make it three dimensional, then sew up the bottom.

To finish, just slip stitch some gold yarn to the top of the tree, then chain 20. Slip stitch again to the same stitch. No need to weave in the ends, just thread your yarn ends to the front of the tree and attach bells at desired length.
