I've just started crocheting some mini Christmas tree decorations, they are soooo cute.

I'm going to make one of each for our tree and then another set and give one as an extra gift to all the family

These are some of the ones I'm doing

They are very sweet smile I think I might make some little sets to sell for a charity group I belong to, thanks for posting them.

(Hope you don't mind I've put them as links for you smile)

Those stars & hearts are lovely

I have just made this crochet snowman - the body is very simple, three ball shapes crocheted in one piece.

I have to admit I didn't understand the hat instructions so made the hat up myself, with a matching scarf.

Lovely links.

I haven't got any links because I have been making things up.

I have made some cute little beaded Christmas puddings out of felt to hang on the tree (with a couple of cloves in to smell Cristmassy).

And I have got some gorgeous gold and green and red fabric that I thought I would make fabric paper chains from.

And I am going to make my children a Christmas stocking each.

And thought 4yo dd would enjoy making pompom snowmen for the tree too.

Years ago I made dickensian mice when my children were young. And they come out every year with their own painted background and fleecy snowsmile The pattern seems to still be available, and is good for using up odds and ends of wool.

Those are beautiful kurrismile bit too difficult for me though.

Those mice are beautiful! I've only just mastered crochetting tho, and I've not tried knitting yet

Yuno, I did felt xmas puds and other decs last year, love the cloves idea
