Tree Making

Alessandra from the blog homemade@myplace shared a tutorial in November for a Christmas tree decoration that I finally worked up the other night.  It's very easy to make and put together.  
 I forgot that Ale said she crocheted two strands together so I made a second one, which of course turned out bigger so needed a bigger star.  I also tied the circles together at the front to make them look like little red bows decorating the tree.  I think I like the first version better so will make more like that.
On the first tree I used the one round tiny star pattern from Fiber Flux and on the second one I used the teeny tiny star pattern from Attic 24.

Happy holidays,

Hi Tammy, I love your little trees!
I was just looking over your last couple of posts and adored the pinecone! The felafels look totally yummy too. I've not been blogging much, trying to catch up! Enjoy those holiday bazaars, I do-I get almost all of my gifts at craft fairs. Now to learn to crochet...

These crocheted trees are wonderful. I like the red bow effect. In reviewing your posts I missed I love your crocheted pinecones. I never thought to crochet any as I have lots of real ones that fall all over. December Delights Dear...

Dearest Tammy,
The first one you did is very cute looking and the star on top is so special. The second one looks very nice too and we cannot tell how much bigger it actually is...
Enjoy these fun projects!

Very cute decoration! I just read your previous post too...with the kidney bean falafels. Those look really good and something a little different. I've only had traditional falafel. Will go take a look at this recipe!

Pam said...

These are so cute. I'm trying to finish up my Christmas presents but I can't believe how time flies. Hoping to begin quilting my sister's quilt tomorrow. Should be finished by Christmas.

Hope you are having a wonderful week. My granddaughters have "8 more days" according to the youngest one.

Those are really sweet! I've done a few stars this year but mostly knitting hats for gifts which aren't looking like they'll get done in time. LOL! Oh well, they'll be surprised AFTER Christmas.
Yours are darling...I like both of them and how completely different they turned out. Happy Holidays!
