12 Weeks of Crochet Christmas Ornaments

| Original: September 25, 2023

Christmas is my absolute favorite season of the year! For me, it isn't just about presents or the decorations, it's about the traditions that bring us closer together as a family.

I wanted to start establishing Christmas traditions a few years ago when we were living in a small Vancouver apartment as a family of 4. The only problem was that our apartment was so tiny, that I didn't really have space for a traditional Christmas tree.

But being the crafty person that I am, I came up with a creative solution -- a crocheted flat Christmas tree that hung behind our front door.

This crochet Christmas tree has become the heart of our holiday celebrations. Every year, on the first day of December, we would carefully unfold and hang our flat tree behind the front door of the apartment.

If you're looking to establish a crochet Christmas tradition of your own, try your hand at crocheting one of these Christmas ornaments each week until Christmas. You'll have 12 beautiful crochet ornaments by Christmas Day.
