Crocheted Christmas Tree Decorations


It is almost Christmas and that means decorating my tree with some DIY and crocheted Christmas ornaments. For these crocheted Christmas ornaments I combined two crocheted doilies with a plain Christmas ornament. Furthermore, I made some small stars which work great as filling for the Christmas tree but could also be a nice addition for your gift wrapping. Enjoy to crochet these patterns.

Break yarn the first time and hide left over threads. For the second time keep the yarn attached. Place the two pieces on top of each other and sew the edges together, but do not forget to add the christmas ornament inside the two pieces before you completely sew them together. Hide the leftover thread.
