Christmas tree decorations

 Every year I try to make a batch of tree decorations to give to friends and family - here are some photos of what I managed to make up this year:


First up I did some simple felt candy canes inspired by Bugs and Fishes lovely tutorial.

 

Next I made up a batch of simple stylised robin decorations (my own design)


These thread decorations were inspired by some pretty crochet baubles shown in this years Simply Crochet Christmas issue.


Lastly but most definitely my favourite would be these very adorable crochet snowmen. Loved making them - even thought the tiny tiny pom poms for the hats were a bit tricky! Brilliant free pattern available through Ravelry.

They're all so gorgeous! Our little snowman hangs proudly on the tree
:-)

I couldn't get a decent pic of the decoration I made you (I hung it off the bannisters but because of how narrow the staircase is, I couldn't get the angle right for a photo (plus the light was terrible!) Any chance you have a photo of it I can borrow for my blog? Pretty please?

The girls stole it for their tree before I even saw it- but I stole it back!! X
