Christmas Tree Ornament

IMG_9965

I absolutely love handmade holiday decorations. These cute little Christmas trees make great ornaments, but they could also be put on a shelf as decorations.

They work up super quick and use very little yarn. Make some for all of your friends and family, and use up that scrap yarn you have laying around. Add buttons and beads to make them extra special.
