How to Make Crochet Christmas Decorations

Below we’ll go over the yarn, hooks, tips, and extras you need to make your crochet Christmas decorations.

Materials and Supplies


  • Color Matters: Pick yarn colors that go well with your current holiday decorations. Reds, greens, and whites are traditional picks, but blues are always fun to add in as well.
  • Texture: Some projects call for chunky yarns, while others work best with fine threads.


  • Size: Make sure to use hooks that fit your chosen yarn. It’s good to have a range between 4 mm to 9 mm.
  • Type: Ergonomic hooks are great, especially for larger projects like table runners.


  • Beads: These add some sparkle to projects like snowflakes and tree ornaments.
  • Ribbon: Useful for hanging your crochet decorations or adding little bows.
  • Stuffing: If you’re making plushies, you’ll need soft, hypoallergenic stuffing.


Here, you’ll find some advice to make your crochet decoration projects go smoothly from start to finish

  1. Plan Ahead: Some projects, like table runners, take a while. Start early to avoid last-minute stress.
  2. Test Swatch: Always a good idea to crochet a small test piece first to check your gauge and tension.
  3. Count Stitches: Keep an eye on your stitch count, especially if you’re working on something intricate.
  4. Have Fun: Remember, the point is to enjoy yourself. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Now, you’re prepped and ready to create some crochet magic this holiday season. I can’t wait to see which of the crochet Christmas decor you pick to make.

Happy Crocheting!
