When I was brainstorming some ideas for the holidays a few months ago, I realized that I simply do not have enough cute crochet ornament patterns in my library! I came up with a few simple ideas and this cute crochet tree shaped ornaments was one the first ideas to hit me. It’s so simple to make! I used green yarn, but afterward thought it was be so cute to use hemp or a neutral colored yarn to give them a bit more rustic look.
I got my wooden beads at Joann, but I shared a link to amazon to beads that are similar. The beads will construct the ornament together and double as a cute little “trunk” at the bottom. I also liked the look of the thicker red ribbon myself, but I just grabbed a few different sizes and colors from my stash, so I encourage you to do the same!

The tree shaped ornaments are constructed by nesting the cones together, with the smallest at the top, the largest at the bottom. No sewing is required!
First, measure out a length of ribbon about 2′ long. Thread the end through your plastic darning needle (I recommend plastic because sharp needle will go through areas that your ribbon won’t be able to follow).
Nest the cones together and with your needle go up through the bottom and out the top.
Next, go back down, leaving an extra large loop on top.
The two ends of the ribbon will be coming out the bottom. With the large loop on top, tie a large knot.
Thread the ribbon ends through the needle and string the wooded beads onto the ribbon at the bottom of the cones. Gently push the beads up so the cones are pressed firmly together, and pressed against the top knot.
Once your beads are strung, tie a knot at the bottom. Depending on your bead size, you might want to put a smaller bead at the bottom so your beads don’t slip over your knot.
Trim the ends of your ribbon (and singe them to prevent fraying).
Aren’t they adorable? This projects is beginner friendly, so it might make a fun craft night with friends.
Enjoy and happy making!
