Advent Calendar Day 5

Advent Calendar Day 5

Welcome to my 2017 advent calendar! Each day, I’ll have something new and special here for you. Some of the treats might be good for one day only–like a free book on Amazon!–and others will be more mundane blog entries like Christmas recipes. I’d recommend coming back each day so you don’t miss out on anything.

Now what’s behind door number five…?

Two crochet Christmas trees with hoops to be hung as ornaments. One is green and one is red. Small felted balls and a felting needle sit beside them.

Every year I like to add at least one new ornament that I made. I love ornaments and decorating trees so much that my dream is to have a differently themed tree in every room of the house (don’t tell my husband!). Until I can manage that feat, I’ll be hanging extra ornaments on garland wrapped around windows or making wreaths with them.

They also make wonderful gifts, like the mitten pattern which will hold a gift card or other little surprises in the tree. I think the tree ornaments are my favorite, and they use really simple stitches. A great choice for a child learning to crochet!
