One-Piece Christmas Ornament
Updated: Mar 4, 2021
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in this household! It kinda looks like Christmas threw up in our house. I might have told Landon we need a bigger house to accommodate all of our decor... he thought maybe I should quit buying/making Christmas decor... but that won't happen, silly boy! ;)
It's a beautiful winter wonderland here as well- which only fuels my festiveness! We've gotten somewhere between 10 and a million inches of snow- even after living here my whole life- I can never tell. I thought this would be the perfect time to kick off the blog with some of my Christmas-ey crochet projects.
First up- these adorable one piece Christmas ball Ornaments. I found patterns for ball ornaments but you had to sew two sides together and they had a noticeable seam. I was looking for something a little more cohesive and I think I got it!
You can attach a piece of yarn and add a little crochet goodness to your tree. The Big Twist Twinkle yarn is just right for these ornaments. It twinkles off the lights in the tree and makes them extra festive. I also think they'd be perfect for a bowl or basket centerpiece- or maybe both!
