There are so many reasons to make a quick crochet Christmas tree, it might be as a gift or for self. One can never have too many Christmas trees if you ask me. The traditional Christmas tree might be too big, especially when space is of the essence. You might also want to place more trees as decorations at strategic places in and outside of your home.
Growing up, I remebered making wall mounted Trees with Tinsels. This is the inspiration behind ths design. All I wanted was to replicate that and show my son.
Some years ago, I made this beautiful crochet Christmas tree which comes in 3 different sizes. Which is the inspiration behind this quick tree pattern.
The uniqueness of this super-fast tree pattern is the fact that it can be made into either a 3D or 2D depending on the location placed.
This is a free pattern, if you want the stepwise photo tutorial, you can get the ad-free version on either Ravelry or Etsy.
This easy pattern makes the best outdoor Christmas Tree, the fact that it’s crocheted makes it even more adaptable as you can customize yours. It is super easy to make this into your desired size.
