Crochet is huge at the moment – so we know that you’ll be looking for festive projects to make as December draws nearer. From the cute to the crazy, there are so many designs to choose from, and this year you’ll definitely choose to crochet your Christmas baubles!
Why baubles, you may ask? If you’re envisaging decorative spheres, then think again! I’m talking about everything from classic Scandinavian-style ornaments to cute amigurumi characters and fun festive motifs. Anything that you can hang from your tree – or around the house in fact! Just check out some of the designs from Crochet Your Christmas Baubles to see what I mean:
The book includes 25 unique decorations to make, and you can see a selection of them here. The projects in Crochet Your Christmas Baubles are split into five distinctive themes, with each chapter being created by a different designer:
Santa’s Grotto, designed by Cara Medus, features Father Christmas and all of his festive friends, including his favourite reindeer, Rudolph, a helpful elf and string of delicious gingerbread men. Kids will love these adorable characters, and you could even make your own miniature grotto to display them in.
Frozen Winter Wonderland, designed by Claire Wilson, features Belle the Icy Snow Princess together with traditional snowflake baubles, snowmen and cute candy bows. The striking contrast between white, icy blue and silver shades and bright scarlet stripes makes this an enchanting theme for children and adults alike.
Fairy Tale, designed by Anna Fazakerley, is inspired by a love of children’s stories. Crochet the fancy festive fairy for the top of your tree, together with a jolly pair of Christmas birds: the tawny owl and red-breasted robin. They look great fun perched on the tree alongside beautifully crocheted red woodland toadstools or hanging out with the cheeky gnome.
White Christmas, designed by Lara Messer, includes mistletoe baubles in pastel shades, Chinese berry lanterns, white amigurumi Christmas trees, a chic cracker decoration and elegant snowflake bunting. The stylish designs look perfect teamed with glistening white fairy lights and classic glass baubles.
Scandinavian Style, designed by Jane Burns, uses the traditional colour scheme of red and white to create classic Christmas decorations for your tree. These simple baubles look beautiful teamed with the other collections or can be used on their own for an authentic Nordic look.
