Christmas Tree

Crochet Pattern for Christmas Tree Ornament

This cute little Christmas tree is super easy to make. I have made them in all sizes and colors. When I first started, I used traditional green for the tree, brown for the trunk and red for the tree stand. I would decorate the tree with beads as ornaments. Now the wild woman in me likes to use all the colors and even better if they are sparkly! Whether you are a traditionalist or not, this little tree makes a terrific addition to your Christmas tree, gift topper or as a gift itself.

Materials:

  1. Small amount of yarn
  2. Crochet Hook
  3. Small amount of fiberfill
  4. Needle
  5. Optional Ribbon bows.

Size of yarn and crochet hook will determine size of Christmas Tree Ornament. I used a fingering weight sparkling yarn doubled with size 10 crochet thread for tree. Size 10 crochet thread doubled up also was used for trunk and stand. A size 2 crochet hook was used.
