Since I can't stand to throw out all my beautiful Christmas cards,I cut shapes from them, then punch holes around the sides, and crochet on them to make beautiful new Christmas Ornaments. I decorated our tree at church last year with them and received raves!!

Approximate Time: 10 minutes



Cut the desired shape from an old Christmas card. Using small aluminum knitting needle or large darning needle, punch holes approximately 3/8 inch in and same amount around the edge of the card shape. Pull crochet thread thru middle hole on bottom of shape, sc, ch 1, sc in next hole all the way around and join in first sc. Row 2: Make simple shells on the 2nd row by skipping next ch, make 5 dc in next ch, on last dc, skip 1 ch, sc. Repeat around by skipping 1 ch, make 5 dc, then skip 1 ch, and sc. Anyone with any knowledge of crocheting can improvise your own edgings.
