O Crochet Christmas Tree

| Original: December 25, 2018

I have received SO MUCH love for my crochet Christmas tree this year on Instagram that it actually pushed me to 1500+ followers by Christmas!

I thought I would do a post just to show how it evolved throughout the month of December as I was working on adding more and more ornaments to it.

I've had many questions about where to get some of the patterns for the tree and ornaments, so I thought I would do a summary and link them all in here as well!

This was one of my Christmas tree's first posts where it was just the tree and then some Christmas lights. I thought it wasn't too bad. However, it did look a little bare with no ornaments.

If you're interested in making your own crochet Christmas tree, these are the crochet patterns I used:
The Christmas tree was crocheted using 3 strands of worsted-weight yarn held together. The Crochet star tree topper was created using 2 strands of worsted-weight yarn held together. It might be hard to tell in the photos, but I used 2 different shades of yellow for the star to give it some more dimension.

Because my tree looked a bit bare with no ornaments and only a single string of crochet lights, I wanted to add some ornaments to it. But obviously, crochet Christmas trees don't have real branches, so I had to figure out a way to hang ornaments.

I found a giant bag of green buttons of different sizes from Dollarama! I still had many left over after attaching 25 buttons to my Christmas tree.

Here are some of the ornaments that I used on my Christmas tree:

And then here are my super popular crochet Christmas bauble ornaments that helped land me on many of your Instagram follow lists. Thank you very much!

Many people are doing Elf on the Shelf with their kids, but that doll gives me the creeps. So I opted for something a little cuter, which was a crochet Santa's Helper amigurumi toy.

And of course, you can't have Christmas without stockings. Where else is old Saint Nick going to put your little presents?

There's no such thing as too early to prepare for Christmas, so it's time to start prepping for next Christmas now!
