Christmas might just be my favorite time of year. The two things I look forward to the most during the holiday season are baking and decorating. The Christmas music…the smell of sugar cookies baking in the oven…arranging all of my favorite decorations throughout my home…I just love it!

Of course, as a crocheter, I enjoy being able to make a lot of my Christmas decorations. This year, I needed a little extra inspiration so I scoured the internet and found some of the prettiest and most festive crochet Christmas ornament patterns.

Gingerbread Head

I am in love with the gingerbread ornament! To begin, it’s extremely beginner-friendly, using just basic stitches in the round to create a circle/ball. Then you will just fill it with polyfill.

To bring him to life, you will add some eyes and stitch on a smile. His rose cheeks are made from tiny crocheted circles. Pretty easy, huh? I’m definitely going to be giving this one a try.
