Yay Christmas time!! We’re past Thanksgiving and it’s officially time to put up the tree if you haven’t already! If you don’t want to use the same old ornaments you use every year, or you just want a little extra crochet pizzazz happenin’, this is the post for you! I’m only featuring my top 10 favorite ornaments, but I have a collection of 25 here if you wanna peruse (pictured above). All of them are made from Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton yarn. I chose this sturdy yarn so that these gems will last you year after year!
I hope you find a sweet new ornament to love, or a new tradition to begin with your family this year! Happy Holidays y’all!
EASY GIFT PATTERNS TO MAKE THIS SEASON!

- Crochet Santa Claus Ornament – This lil bearded fella has my heart! Ever since I can remember, my mom has brought out this flat, pillow-like Santa ragdoll every year for Christmas decoration. He sits on the couch and enjoys all of our holiday rituals right along with us. (check out my crochet recreation of him here!) So when I set out to make an ornament collection, a little Santa had to be included because of the special role of imagination and magic he brought to my home each season and to so many others too!
- Crochet Christmas Cookies Ornament – I love me some cookies! My great grandmother used to have a magnet on her fridge that read, “A cookie in each hand is a balanced diet,” and I truly believe that’s where my cookie obsession subconsciously began. Also, every year my mom, sisters, and I would bake as many cookies as our stomachs could handle – all. December. long. It has since transitioned into a cookie swap party that we host just before Christmas with local friends and family. Plus, these tiny cookies just make me squeal they’re so cute!
- Crochet Gingerbread House Ornament – Gingerbread house making was quite the art form in my house growing up. My dad and I would make gingerbread cookie sheets from scratch (!!!) and have a different theme each year. One year, we made a gingerbread church with stained glass windows made of oven baked Jolly Ranchers all melted together. Then we stuck all kinds of different candies on the outside, finished with a dusting of powdered sugar for snow. This is my best original style gingerbread house crochet replica! And yes, she has some design on the back too.
- Crochet Bing Crosby Ornament – Christmas music, and Christmas music only for the month of December. There’s just something about music from 50+ years ago that I’m in love with. Maybe it’s the raw sound, or the scratchy feedback that came with old timey recording, but I just find the whole experience comforting – and Bing Crosby’s White Christmas makes me feel some kinda way. (I was really born in the wrong era.) Don’t get me wrong, I listened to my fair share of Mariah Carey and *NSYNC holiday hits like every other kid in the ’90s, but putting on a Christmas record just gives me those warm & fuzzy holiday feels.
- Crochet Mini Stockings Ornament – Aren’t these mini stockings just adorable?! Honestly, I think it’s human nature to automatically love a miniature version of anything. So who better to gift these to than mini humans! I’m talking about all those nieces and nephews and cousins that you never seem to know what to get for… Fill these babies with some chocolate, and I promise those kiddos will be happy as clams.
- Crochet Candy Cane Covers – We’re taking just plain old candy canes up a notch. I took dance lessons when I was younger, and this time of year after class, our teachers would hand out mini candy canes and I will forever love them for it. Make these cute and simple covers to adorn your tree with, or to just add a little spice to your candy cane gifting for teachers and friends alike!
- Crochet Nutcracker Ornament – In addition to taking dance lessons, I also used to participate in my local Nutcracker Ballet for several years in a row! So not only did I become intimately familiar with the doll and story, we always had a few standing tall in my house. My dad even brought one home to my sister and I all the way from Germany! Can you tell my family takes Christmas very seriously?
- Crochet Let It SnowFlake Ornament – Never have I ever had a white, snowy Christmas. Dang you, Florida sun! But it’s always been something I yearn for. And I always liked cutting out paper snowflake designs and hanging them up everywhere. Besides, who doesn’t love a pretty snowflake ornament?! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tree without at least one.
- Crochet Christmas Lights Ornament – When I was younger, my family used to drive around all over town Christmas Eve night and look at all the beautifully lit houses. Sometimes (if the roads were empty), we would even stop the car to gawk at another house’s dedication and commitment to Christmas decorations. You literally had to stop to admire and find each element in their yard. So if you are one of those houses who truly go all out, I salute you.
- Crochet Hot Chocolate Ornament – Hot cocoa is my favorite holiday beverage, hands down. There’s just nothing like snuggling up on the couch by the fire with your fuzzy socks on, holiday movie starting, and a mug of hot cocoa with marshmallows in hand. And probably a plate of freshly baked cookies on the table next to you. Because what is a Christmas movie without snacks?
