It’s snowing! It has been so pretty all day, and I am really feeling in the Christmas mood. I’ve been wrapping gifts, listening to Christmas music and crafting up something to share with you all!
If you are into really embellishing your Christmas gifts, and you know how to crochet, then this is the project for you! I promise it will only take you about 5 minutes. Maybe 10 minutes if you are a newbie to crochet. This is the perfect project if you are just getting used to the whole crochet thing.
I decided I wanted to dress up my Christmas gifts that I will be giving out, so I created this pine tree and loved the simplicity of it. It is so cute and small, but you could definitely use a larger hook size to create a bigger tree. The great thing about this is you can dress it up however you’d like. Prefer it plain and rustic? Leave it the way it is. Want to add a bit of color? Figure a way to add some ornaments to your tree. This is a great project to use up yarn scraps, as I did. If you don’t have green and brown, you can always make a colored tree, or whatever you’d like!
I love the rustic look of the colors in my tree. Both yarns are from Red Heart Soft. The green is called Leaf Green and the brown is called Toast. I absolutely love the look and feel of the Red Heart soft yarn!
If you just love the look of this little tree for decorating your home, try stringing a bunch on some string/yarn for a garland, or hang them with string in front of your windows! There are so many possibilities for these little guys.
Here is the pattern FREE just for you! And just in time to get going before Christmas.
