Bauble Christmas Ornaments

IMG_9832

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and I absolutely love decorating for it. We actually have 4 decorated trees in our house. We have a small one on the kitchen counter, my daughter has a little 2 foot one in her bedroom, we’ve got our big one in the living room, and this year I set up a big one in my bedroom. I’m covering that one with only crocheted items.

These bauble ornaments are a definite must-have if you want a crochet decorated tree. You can make as many or as few of these as you’d like. They’re super quick to make, and the possibilities for color options are endless. These are also great for using up those scraps of yarn that you have laying around.
