Creative Christmas: Crocheted Christmas Trees

Just a quick little post from me today as I'm already falling behind on my list of "things to do".
I just had to stop and tell you much I am getting into the spirit of things!!! I bought my Christmas tree yesterday and spent the evening decorating it (pictures coming soon), the Christmas decorations are out of storage boxes and stockings are hanging from the drawers! I get excited just thinking about returning home from work tonight to my Christmas tree with its twinkly lights :-)

Now one of my Christmas decorations I simply must share with you, are these lovely little crocheted Christmas trees. They are a real favourite of mine and I love seeing them sat perfectly on a table or on top of the drawers looking out over the apartment.

I have four in total, ranging from a very tiny light green one:

  Up to a much darker and more substantial one:
They were actually made a few Christmases ago with an amazing pattern by June Gilbank. Despite being a few years old they always come out of the storage box looking fresh and as festive as ever.

They are topped with cute little stars that simply shine Christmas cheer!!


Sat on my chest of drawers amongst a scattering of pine cones


I imagine them to be grouped together deep in a forest surrounded by frosty snow.


They are one of my favourite decorations and very worthy to be shared with you lovely people! I hope you liked seeing them!
Speak soon!!!

  16. I am having such fun following your star tutorial! I have just made the simple star without the edging so far. My little grand girl saw the stars on my computer screen and told me that I could make a star for her:) Then she dashed to my basket of cotton yarn and found a pink ball of yarn for me to make her a pink star because pink is her current favorite color. So far I have made four pink stars for her and she is delighted! I have given two of the yellow stars I've made away and plan to make some more. And now you have brought my attention to this wonderful tree pattern...do you think I could follow the pattern...I want to try:) Thanks so much for sharing your giftedness with us, Matt. xx from Gracie

  24. Oh my goodness, I love these! Wish I had time to make one myself, but starting to feel a bit snowed under. It'll hae to go on the list for next year!

    Thanks so much, for your lovely comment on my blog the other day, so lovely of you to say so! Funny saying about my photography, which I always feel I struggle with. I was just thinking the other day how good all your photos are. They are always so well lit and well staged, you have a real knack for getting a good look.
