Countdown to Christmas with MJ’s Merry Minis

Sharing is caring!

Get ready because Dec 1st begins our Countdown to Christmas with MJ’s Merry Minis Crochet Along! This will be an exciting event you don’t want to miss. Prepare for the Holiday Season and get in the Christmas Spirit by crocheting a simple and quick Christmas ornament every day.


How does the event work?

Every day from Dec 1st through Dec 25th, I will release a new ornament on my blog. The pattern will be free on my blog and include a video tutorial on my YouTube Channel.

This blog post will be the main page that will host all the links for each pattern. Bookmark this page for easy reference. You will be able to click on the Countdown list, and it will take you to the ornament blog post on its release day.

If you don’t want to wait for each ornaments release day, I have put together a beautiful Ebook with all 25 ornaments! Keep in mind the videos will only be available on the release day.

To make these handmade Christmas ornaments, I suggest purchasing 1-2 balls of each colour with a few extra in white. For my pompoms and beaded tassel, I used a value worsted weight yarn.

Wool of the Andes Worsted Weight yarn in White, Coal, Noble Heather, Brass Heather, Hollyberry Dove Heather, Mink Heather and Camel Heather.

Additional supplies include twine, string, wooden beads, wooden rings (1.5″ & 1.75″), ornament hooks, jumbo and mini pompom maker, glue gun, 2.75″ ornament balls, tapestry needle and cinnamon sticks.

I used a Beautiful Streamline Ergonomic Wooden Crochet Hook from Furls. The G (4mm) Camwood and Ebony hooks are used in the video tutorials.

Most of the miscellaneous supplies can be picked up at your local dollar store but I’ve also linked many of the items in my Amazon Storefront.

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.

You won’t be disappointed with the beautiful Ebook I’ve designed! The perfect start to the Holiday Season. Purchase it now on ETSY or Ravelry
