Now that the Black Friday ads are coming out and the radio stations are starting to play Christmas tunes, we can focus on the holidays and no one can say we’re too early! It’s always been tradition in my family to get our Christmas tree the last weekend in November. Sure, the needles are always a little droopy by the time Christmas rolls around, but if I’m going to shell out for a real tree I want to enjoy it for as long as I can! There’s nothing like the smell of pine needles to put me in the Christmas spirit for the whole month of December. Even if you’re planning to wait a while before getting the tree set up, it’s not too early to start thinking about how to decorate it!
This year, give your tree a personal touch by making DIY Christmas ornaments. Knit and crochet ornaments go a long way to give your tree a cozy feeling, and they’re so quick to work up you can have quite a few made before you even put up the tree! I’ve gathered 20+ of our most festive knit and crochet patterns so you can have the cutest tree on the block – check them out below!
