Crochet Christmas Tree Decorations

Crochet Christmas Tree Ornaments
Hi there it’s Michelle here and it’s that time of the year again! Almost time to deck the halls and all that jazz.
Here’s a quick and easy little crochet project to brighten up your day.
You can make these little crochet Christmas tree decorations as single ornaments to hang from your tree or attach to a gift or why not make several and turn them into a festive garland. I’ve also included instructions to make the mini pom poms to embellish your little Christmas trees.

Make crochet striped christmas tree decorations
You can make your stripes consistent or random widths as I have, but try to keep the last 4 rows one colour (it’s a pain changing colours here).
Have a look at this nifty Random Stripe Generator for some stripey inspiration.

How to make a Mini Pom Pom

How to make a mini pom pom
1. Cut a 20 cm length of yarn and lay it across your open hand and over your first two fingers.
2. From your ball of yarn start wrapping over the yarn laying over your fingers aprox 6 wraps wide, keep wrapping yarn around
about 40 times.
3. Holding end in place, cut yarn. Grab the yarn that’s laying over your fingers and holding everything together, carefully slide off your fingers. Tie a double knot as tight as you can.
4. Now it’s about to get messy! Holding the long thread out of the way and using sharp scissors cut about 1 cm down from the top.
Keep trimming and fluffing until you have a cute little tiny pom pom.

Thread your yarn needle with both strands of the long yarn and thread through the top of your tree.
Secure with a double knot and cut off as close as possible.
