Im so happy with how my Christmas Tree turned out. I’ve added wooden bead garland and a few pinecone ornaments. I used my Easy C2C Blanket for my Tree Skirt and the Chunky Buffalo Plaid Crochet Throw to stay with the plaid theme. If you love my Christmas Sweater you can get it HERE and my skirt HERE. They really helped give my tree the rustic aesthetic look I was going for!

Not only do these ornaments look beautiful on a Christmas tree, but they make the perfect present toppers as well. Add these ornaments to your list of crochet gifts for Christmas! The crochet Christmas decorations vary in skill level, and some can be made with no crochet experience. That way, the entire family can get involved.
