Christmas Ornaments – Day 18

I found this tutorial on how to make these super cute little candles on one of my favorite craft blogs. However, I decided to crochet it instead of knitting it simply because I was too lazy to get up and get a set of knitting needles. Yeah, that’s pretty lazy…! So using a crochet hook I came up with pretty much the same thing by following her directions.

Christmas Ornaments – Day 17

I found a link to this pattern on Instagram. These are super cute little Granny Stocking Ornaments. These were super fast to work up and I have every intention of making more. In fact I am thinking about making a bunch as decorations this year and then using them as gifts next year. That sounds like a great way toΒ get double use out of my time. Β Ravelry Link
