Christmas Ornament Crochet Patterns

There’s no limit to what type of Christmas ornament you can crochet, like Christmas baubles, candy canes, crochet angels, snow globes, reindeer Rudolph, an elf, Santa Claus and more. Below you will find a few of these, but also some more unique and fun ones to make.

Having a selection of your own crochet Christmas decorations to unpack from storage every year is the best and most cozy feeling you can have. Each one brings back memories that takes you back to when you made them.

But if you get really busy making these Christmas crochet ornaments, you don’t have to keep all of them. They can be sold at Christmas craft fairs or be great as Christmas gifts.

One of my favorite ways to use the crocheted Christmas ornaments other than to decorate my home or tree, is to use them as embellishments to wrap the Christmas presents.
