Decorating a Christmas Tree with Crocheted OrnamentsBy A Guest Writer – 11 Comments

My goal for this year was to crochet enough ornaments to decorate an entire Christmas tree (even a small one would be good). I saw a picture online once of a white tree that had blue crocheted snowflakes in all different sizes and shades of blue then a silver garland crocheted from some really glittery yarn. The best part was the topper, it was a white thread angel that was incredibly lacy and must have taken forever to make. The whole thing was so gorgeous it literally took my breath away.
This year I only crocheted three ornaments (and they’re not even for me). Why? Because I didn’t start until November and with all the gift-making (and of course all the non-crafty stuff that needs to be done this time of year) I have run out of time. So my goal next year is to make one ornament a month, just one! And see if by this time next year I can decorate a tiny tree in purple, gold and silver crocheted spheres.
The point of the blue tree, if I remember correctly, was if you donated food, time or money to the food bank where it was located you got to take home one of the snowflakes and then on Christmas day the angel took a trip to the local children’s hospital to grace a tree there while Santa made his rounds. Doesn’t that sound like a great holiday tradition? I wonder if there were any crocheted toys in Santa’s bag. My guess is there probably was; certainly this gives me some ideas for next year (though I think that angel is a little out of my league).
