    Christmas tree description

    This free Christmas tree crochet pattern makes a great decoration for the holidays. As you may know I originally made the Christmas tree as part of a dollhouse bundle, but it is big enough and pretty enough to make a stunning table centerpiece or decoration for your home this Christmas. For this reason I crocheted two one for my dining table and one for the kids!

    The crochet Christmas tree measures 16cm tall by 12cm wide (6.25” x 4.75”). A lovely size for a table decoration. Also the perfect size for a 1:6 scale dolls house (12” fashion dolls). The Christmas tree is finished of with a big bow around the trunk and of course a star on the top. You can have fun decorating your tree with fairy lights, beads, sequins or anything else you have in your craft box.

    How to crochet a Christmas tree

    The Christmas tree crochet pattern is easy to make. You’ll need to know your basic crochet stitches as well as simple increases/decreases. You’ll also need to know how to work into back/front loops and simple colour changes. In addition to make the Christmas tree I used a 4.5mm crochet hook and DK (weight 3) yarn in 3 colours. I used green and brown for a traditional Christmas tree with silver for the decorations to match the ones I have at home. As well as yarn you’ll need toy stuffing to fill up your tree. I chose to decorate mine with a chain of yarn, beads and battery operated fairy lights. As you can see from my photos, you really don’t need those if you don’t have them handy as it looks fabulous without them too.

    Then press it down to create a fold

    Using yarn colour C and a tapestry needle sew the two pieces together

    You will now have a nice fold in your bow.

    Repeat the above steps for the other side of the bow.

    Sew completed bow onto the ribbon (colour C) part of your tree.

    Weave in all ends to complete your tree.

    I made decorations by making a chain of 150 and wrapping it around the tree.

    I also used some battery operated fairy lights. You can find the link in my website I’d you’d like the same ones.

    You could also sew on some beads if you’d like the get more creative.
