This year I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas countdown, showing off things I have made as gifts and ornaments either this year or in previous years. If you are wanting to make handmade gifts for your loved ones this year, then keep watching because I hope to put an awesome Christmas related tutorial or recipe up every day until Christmas Eve.
For the first day of the countdown, I wanted to share a little set of christmas tree ring ornaments I made a few weeks ago. They literally took me 10 minutes each to make and they are very cute. So simple to make, they only use basic crochet stitches so whip some up today :D
I made these ones using a sparkly white yarn and a red yarn held together, which I think gives a really nice effect in the finished ring. They can be made all in one colour if you would rather, just hold two strands of the same yarn together.
To make your own set of christmas tree ring ornaments, you will need: yarn in one or two colours, a 5mm crochet hook and four curtain rings (with the hook removed).
Christmas Tree Ring Ornaments
1. make a slipknot using two strands of yarn held together, pass the slipknot through the centre of the curtain ring, then join the slipknot to your hook, join the yarn to the curtain ring with a slip stitch then ch1
2. work 25 hdcs around the ring, join with a sl st in 1st hdc
3. ch10, join back to the st at base of ch with a sl st
4. bind off and weave in ends
I hope you all enjoyed this pattern. You can find more Christmas Countdown posts here.
