Crochet Christmas decorations

I’ve been collecting a lot of crochet Christmas decoration ideas over the past few weeks and managed to try three of them before the big day: a wreath, a star and a mini Santa hat.

The wreath: it may be a manky sludge-green colour but it was a quick make. I added the red ‘ribbon’ through the middle to try to pretty up the green.

I really should invest in a nicer green yarn!

The star: this was something different to the snowflakes (see previous post) to try, and a cute design. The edging isn’t great as the pattern was a bit hard for me to follow (I’m still learning to read crochet patterns) but from a distance it looks fine.

Cute little star

The mini Santa hat: another decoration made from a pattern that I wasn’t great at following so some parts at the top of the hat probably aren’t as neat as they should be, but it improves as you get towards the end. I decided to make a mini pompom for the top rather than a small crochet ball as I thought it’d look nicer, though it needs a trim to neaten it up.

Ho ho ho!
