1. Crochet Ribbon Christmas Tree

We love the unusual look of these trees made simply by creating a ribbon and folding it over crocheted baubles! It's a great project for using up oddments of yarn, too.

2. Chain Loop Snowflake

Just look at how delicate this little snowflake is! It is intended as a gift topper, but it's so easy to make you could easily string a handful together to create a wintry garland.

3. Chocolate Orange Cosies

The best things come in threes, just like these adorable reindeer, robin and Christmas pudding chocolate orange gift covers. You could always put a real orange inside, but we'd be happier with the chocolate.

4. Desk Top Christmas tree

The beauty of this project is its simplicity, so it's a great way for beginners to get into holiday crafting. It's great for any green yarn you have laying around, plus you can use up old buttons as decorations!

5. Cosy Mitten Garland

We love the whimsical look of this garland, and it's made with real mittens, which you could remove from the decoration and give as gifts next year.

6. Simple Snowman

This pattern is perfect for inexperienced crocheters as it is almost entirely worked in double crochet stitch, plus you can learn double crochet decreasing.

7. Colourful Christmas Trees

The mini pom-pom instructions alone would be great, but these merry and bright stripy trees look great and it would be easy to make several of them in an afternoon.

8. Rudolph the Cubic Reindeer

There'd be no Christmas without Rudolph, and we're in awe of this little project. It's straightforward and adorable to boot! Why not make eight black-nosed reindeer and one with a red nose?

9. What a Hoot!

Seriously, how much cuter can it get than an owl in a Santa hat? All the components are made up separately then stitched together, and it's much more simple than it looks!

10. Crocheted Christmas Baubles

These ornaments are made to fit around 5cm polystyrene balls, but you could easily stuff them with scraps of yarn to minimise waste.

11. The Grinch Decoration

There are two types of people when it comes to Christmas; the Cindy-Lou Whos and the Grinches. Which one are you?
