Little Trees

25. January 2013

Last year I knitted and crocheted little trees for decoration. This was perfect for using up little green scraps.

Recently I have had pain in my hands while crafting and these little project saved me:

Mini Christmas Tree

Hanging Christmas Tree

Pint Sized Christmas Tree

Whitney’s Pine Christmas Tree

The kids in my flat loved especially this tree:

Purled Christmas Tree

I had decorated it in front of my door and they often squeezed it. So the shape of this little tree often changed.

Made a few christmal balls, too:

Christmas Ball #1

Christmas Ball #2

Christmas Ball #3

Those little project can be made during the year between two project. All you need are small scraps and a little bit extra time. When christmas is near, there is often a lot to do and definitely no extra time.

Because of the pain in my hands, there was no christmas gift knitting last year and these little objects were perfect to fight my christmas blues.

There are lots of patterns for christmas ornaments. Check out these ones:
