A free crochet Christmas tree pattern perfect for using as a garland, ornament or present decoration. You'll love how fast this tree works up!

Crochet Christmas tree ornaments always bring a smile to my face. I love all the cute and creative designs but also have a soft spot for the classics (read Christmas baubles and wreaths)

This particular crochet Christmas tree ornament was inspired by a similar tree made of paper I saw on Pinterest a while back.

What I love about it is that not only is it a fun and super quick make (all of 15 minutes!) it has a multitude of uses as well. Besides decking out your Christmas tree and giving it a lovely modern look, you can use it to add a little extra touch to your presents or packages.
