The boho Christmas Ball is made in the round from the bottom up. The tassel is made first so that it can be added to the bottom of the cover. The ball is placed inside the cover before the final decrease round. Weave to tighten the final round and secure the cover in place.
Cut 10 strands of yarn 8″ in length and 2 strands at 14″. Tie one 14″ strand around the centre of 10 yarn strands and knot. Tie the last strand of yarn around yarn pieces and knot making a small tassel ball, wrap the yarn around a few times and weave the ends down through the tassel ball. With a yarn needle add a bead to the top of the tassel ball.

I’m so happy with how my Christmas Tree turned out. I added wooden bead garland and a few pinecone ornaments. Not only do these ornaments look beautiful on a Christmas tree, but they make the perfect present toppers as well. The decorations vary in skill level, and some can be made with no crochet experience. That way, the entire family can get involved. I used my Easy C2C Blanket for my Tree Skirt and the plaid blanket will be coming to my shop soon. If you love my Christmas Sweater you can get it HERE and my skirt HERE.
