Snowflakes and reindeers and Douglas firs and ugly sweaters and holiday cards sent from halfway around the world – it’s Christmas time again! You know the drill: these are some of the store favorites for Christmas celebrations.
Christmas Bauble by Greedy for Colour
This pattern has blown-up on the internet! It’s like every craft blog worth its salt has featured this tutorial at some point and some have even posted some creative variations. Greedy for Colour’s knit ornaments look sweet, easy, and perfect for your leftover yarn stash.
Paperclip Ice Skate Ornament by Suzie’s Stuff
We at Nine Rubies think these ornaments are super creative. They look pretty simple to make, and the paperclip blade makes them unique.
Yarn Basket Ornament by Red Heart
Red Heart hit the nail on the head with this ornament pattern – it’s perfect to give to your fellow crafters or to the friends who tease you for your yarn obsession.
If you have some blah glass or metal ornaments laying around, try dressing them up with some ornament cozies:
Ornament Cozy by Knit Darling
These stocking patterns are pretty classic. Who knows, they could end up being family heirlooms after this Christmas.
Paige’s Christmas Stocking by Jennifer Hoel
Tis the Season Stocking by Pennies per Hour of Pleasure
Christmas Tree Christmas Stocking by Lion Brand Yarn
(psst, this one is crochet!)
Bunting and Garlands
A key part of the holiday season is tacky decorations, not that these garlands are tacky! Actually, they’re pretty cute and I could be convinced to leave them up all year (or at least all winter).
Snowflake Garland by One Sheepish Girl
Smitten by Emily Ivey
Advent Garland by Frankie Brown
The last one is the best Christmas garland I’ve found yet! How cute is this? You could even use all the separate parts for Christmas ornaments.
Embroidered Gift Tags by Craftyminx
Yarn has so much potential, especially with gift wrapping. Embellish your presents with crochet flowers, novelty yarn ties, and sweet handmade gift tags. The possibilities are endless.
