Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your house? I am not quite ready to put up Christmas decorations, but it’s never too late to start making some. I like to finish the Thanksgiving dishes before I put the tree up. To help with your decorations I have come up with a dozen ornaments that I really like. This list includes five knit, five crochet, and two crafty ornaments for you to choose from. These can be used on your tree, to embellish your wrapped packages or as hostess gifts. There are plenty more to check out on RedHeart.com.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a wreath so why not include Wreath Ornaments for your tree? They work up quickly so you can make several.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…with some Snowflake Ornaments for your tree. These would also work well in place of a bow.
Give a Holiday Heart Ornament as a gift for that someone special in your life.
Crochet the Wise Owl Ornament for the bird lover in your circle. He comes complete with a dashing scarf.
This precious Bear Ornament is on my list to crochet. No need for this cutie to go into hibernation!
A Little Penguin Ornament in a hat and scarf will be an added treat for your tree. I can also see him hanging from a bottle of wine or sparkling cider as a gift.
Yarn is a great tool to craft with. I love sitting around with the kids and doing crafts during the holidays. It is a great way to pass those cold winter days. Here we have the Hook and Needle Ornaments and you do not have to know how to knit or crochet to make them.
The Tassels for Your Tree Ornament is another one that your children will love making. What a wonderful use for your scrap yarn!
I hope you find something here to help you create a hand-crafted gift from the heart. I also wish for you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
