I think a lot of people (myself included!) get caught up in making sweaters and garments during the cooler weather. But most crochet home decor can be worked up quicker and simpler, especially if you’re looking for easy gift ideas. So I’ve gathered up my favorite patterns right here for ya! All of them would be really fun to Christmas-ify (can we make that a word please?!), which means to make something Christmas themed or inspired. Here, I’ll even use it in a sentence, for clarification purposes… “Let’s Christmasify the entire house! Yes Brenda, that means we now live in a gingerbread house. But look at the upside – it’s edible!” Too far? I think not. My family doesn’t joke about holidays.
Quick side note about actually living in a gingerbread house – have any of you been to the Grand Floridian Disney World hotel in Orlando, FL during the holidays? If you’re a local, this is something you just have to experience. At multiple Disney hotels, their pastry chefs spend a crazy amount of hours baking and building life size gingerbread displays!

OTHER QUICK CROCHET PATTERNS I LOVE (and you should too!)
Click the photos or title links below to check out the patterns!
- DIY Yarn Loop Wreath with Bernat Blanket EZ – This new loop yarn is all the craze right now, but I wanted to take it in a different direction with a diy project. It had been a minute I’d done something easy and crafty for y’all, and this was just the perfect thing! This yarn creates a fluffy, cloud-like texture that you don’t often see in a wreath. Adorn this home accessory with seasonal or homey accents and you’re ready to hang it outside your front door, or on the wall inside!
- Crochet Cactus Coasters – These so-cute-I-wanna-pinch-’em coasters are as functional as they are adorable! I made them with Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton, making them super durable for drinks that sweat. And don’t worry if they get stained – this yarn stand up well to washing too!
- Crochet Homemaker Throw – This gingham pattern throw blanket holds a special place in my heart. I think it’s safe to say that I welcome several shades of pink in all aspects of life, so it was only fitting that I have a classic, comfy blanket in a rosy blush color. And believe it or not, this is the blanket my husband reaches for first when lounging on the couch! (Thank you soft & fuzzy Touch of Alpaca yarn!)
- Crochet Knit Look Pillow (with Sierra!) – I may or may not claim this to be the easiest pattern ever… Why, you ask? Because it’s made of only slip stitches! (yes, you read that right) That’s how you get this beautifully clean knit look, without learning a new craft. All thanks to Sierra from Sweet Everly B! We appreciate your easy and pretty patterns.
- Crochet Rosette Bunting – This sweet little bunting is perfect for anywhere in your home! Tack it underneath some photos on the wall, on your mantle, or in front of a cabinet like I did here.
- Crochet Heirloom Cabled Throw – My goodness, I could stare at these cables all day. Don’t get me wrong, designing this pattern tested my patience a bit but the end result is sooo worth it! Plus, I have some easy tutorials for you to follow, making this a great pattern for the beginner cabler.
- Crochet Magnolia Bobble Pillow – Joanna Gaines is one of my favorite humans, and I am just obsessed with her Magnolia home decor line. I found a similar looking pillow to this, got seriously inspired, and set out to make my own. And here it is! Click here if you feel like going down a deep rabbit hole and drooling over all her amazing things!
- Crochet Flower Pot – My fun flower pot would be so cute worked up in any combination of colors to make a stunning bouquet! This pattern makes a great gift for the holidays, birthdays, Mother’s Day, or simply just because! The possibilities are endless here.
- Crochet Mini Basketweave Blanket – This blanket came out so soft and snuggly! You’ll need 12 of these bad boys in oatmeal – or any color. (there’s over 30 to pick from!)
- Easy Beginner Crochet Coasters – You get a coaster, and you get a coaster, everybody gets coasters!! (Anyone else grow up watching Oprah? It’s one of my favorite pastimes.) This pattern is really quick to stitch up, making this a great go to gift idea for the holidays! All you need is some cotton yarn and a hook and you’re ready crochet some coasters like it’s going out of style.
