If you’re wondering “what can I crochet for Christmas?” you are in the right place… because we have more than 100 festive crochet Christmas ornaments and decor patterns to share with you today!

I LOVE crochet Christmas ornaments and decorations because they’re:

  • Relaxing to make
  • Fabulous stash busters
  • And your toddler (or cat) can’t break them!

My little boy LOVES our Christmas ornaments so much he has a tendency of stealing them from the tree to play with, and since quite a few got broken last year I was trying to find some child-proof options…

Then it dawned on me that crochet Christmas decorations were just what we needed!

And oh my… there are so many ADORABLE Christmas ornament patterns out there!

Because they’re so small they hook up in no time so they make the perfect project for a wet and windy weekend (or any kind of weather weekend really!)

And when you’ve crocheted enough for your own tree why not whip up some more to give as homemade Christmas gifts that will make your loved ones smile as they hang them on their own tree for years to come!
