Some of the best Christmas crochet ideas come in the form of holiday ornaments to adorn your tree.  

I still have the small, bright white, crochet snowflakes that I made with my mom.  I put them up each year on our Christmas tree, and they bring back wonderful memories of Christmases back in my childhood home. 

Mom used the Epsom salt method to keep the snowflakes stiff; you will find several crochet snowflake ornament tutorials that explain the Epsom salt method to keep your own ornaments crisp for many Christmases to come.

Let’s start with the snowflake tutorials that we have for you!

The Lacy Crochet Snowflake pattern uses fine crochet thread and has directions for several sizes.  This tutorial explains the use of Epsom salts to keep your snowflake stiff.  You can use this technique for all of the snowflake links below.

Be sure to check out the other snowflake ornament links, as well as the beautiful lacy snowflake garland!

If you are looking for more garlands, the crochet paper ring garland is beautiful and can be used year after year!  Be sure to check out another clever crochet Christmas garland which features red popcorn berries on a sage background with picot edges! 

A great beginner crochet ornament is the adorable candy cane stitched to naturally create a coil, which gives it the classic candy stripe.  It will look great on a Christmas tree as well as used for little crochet package ornaments for holiday gift.

There is also the sparkling candy cane cover which is another sweet treat for your tree!

Don’t miss the other crochet Christmas ornaments like the chenille bear, the adorable crochet Santa head, and more.

Home Decor

Be sure to take a peek at the cozy Christmas crochet throws and pillows to bring warmth to your home this holiday.

The Christmas Star throw and pillow are intermediate patterns with deep yarn colors like burgundy to create a traditionally inspired design with graphic poinsettias.

Check out the modern Christmas tree crochet throw using lovely colors such as charcoal and woodland heathers, dark sage, autumn red, burgundy and white.  Just beautiful!

And then there is my favorite, the crochet Christmas wreath throw!  It has a modern yet cozy look to it, with two-tone greens in sage and thyme wreaths with burgundy bows.  A sweet ribbon crochet border is made with burgundy yarn!

We have many more home decor crochet Christmas items to make your house festive!  You’ll find a lovely crochet tree skirt, a free Christmas crochet pattern for decorated tabletop trees, a decorative Christmas tree potholder, and many more Christmas crochet ideas!
