Crochet Christmas Decorations

My little boy LOVES our Christmas ornaments so much he has a tendency of stealing them from the tree to play with, and since quite a few got broken last year I was trying to find some child-proof options… then it dawned on me that crochet Christmas decorations were just what we needed!

And oh my… are there so many ADORABLE ornament patterns out there! Because they’re so small they hook up in no time so they make the perfect project for a wet and windy weekend (or any kind of weather weekend really!)

And when you’ve crocheted enough for your own tree why not whip up some more to give as homemade Christmas gifts that will make your loved ones smile as they hang them on their own tree for years to come!

1 | Christmas Bauble


Crochet Pattern Christmas Tree Baubles

I love the floral design on these decorative baubles!

You’ll need some 4ply/sport weight yarn in the colors of your choice and some 3 inch baubles to cover with your crochet.

You can just use some of last year’s baubles or grab some from Amazon to make your crochet Christmas decorations.

2 | Christmas Character Ornaments


Xaver Christmas Tree Ornaments

I LOVE the Lalylala crochet patterns because the characters are always so cute!

This pattern set has three little softie characters you can crochet to hang on your tree: a Christmas tree, a candle and a little angel.

The patterns work really well for beginners because they have really detailed step-by-step instructions and lots of photos to show you what to do.

These would make really cute gift tags or pocket sized stocking stuffer friends for your kids!

Here’s another Christmas crochet pattern that’s perfect for beginners, again the pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions as well as photographs, and the gauge isn’t really all that important as long as your star stays flat!

You can hang these on your tree individually or string them together to make a garland that would look fabulous wrapped around your tree, across your mantel or even hung above your baby’s crib in the nursery!
