Crochet flat Christmas tree ornament
Another basic shape that can be turned into an ornament. A triangle that looks like a Christmas tree with beads, yarn, sequins to bling it up. Simple, fast, cute and adorable.
This crochet Christmas tree ornament is super cute and super easy to make. The pattern is free with written instructions, diagrams and a YouTube video tutorial.
It uses only basic stitches and the pattern is adjustable to what you need. For the size that I wanted I made a base of 15 chains. If you would want to make it smaller use lase base stitches as long as it is an odd number (13, 15, 17, 19, 21,...).
The size of the finished ornament is just a bit more then over 6cm at the bottom and the tree is good 7cm high. I have been using a 3mm crochet hook.
You can make the ornament as single layered, but I made two and at the end I sew them together.
The pattern is SUPER EASY because it only uses chain stitches, single crochet stitches and a decrease single crochet stitches. All the decrease stitches are don in the back loops only.
Materials needed for the project:
- crochet hook (3mm)
- yarn (appropriate size for the crochet hook)
- beads, sequins, glitter yarn, ...

The diagram for the tree base:
After you finish the base you have to make the edge and you do that with crocheting single crochet stitches all around except on the bottom left and right corner where you put 4 single crochet stitches in one and on top where you make a 2 single crochet stitches, a picot and another single crochet stitch. At the end you join the end with and invisible join.
As I said I made two and then I used my needle and sewed them together. That means that now they look the same on both sides.
You can embroider and bling up the tree before sewing the two parts together or after. I opted for the harder things and was sewing on the beds and sequins after the join.
