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.
