There are so many wonderful things about the holiday season… and I love them all. But, one of the best things about Christmas for my family, is decorating our home with festive decor. If you are a crocheter like me, then you probably start early in the year to make holiday-inspired decorations and gifts. I’ve made many festive items over the years and they’ve all become special because there is a sentimental memory attached to each one of them.
I have my favorites, but I’m always looking for new and creative holiday patterns to make and add to my collection and decorate my home with. There are so many patterns available, but invariably I always look to Etsy to find some of the nicest festive designs out there. And they never let me down. I’ve collaborated with several amazing designers to bring you the coolest, cutest, and cleverest festive patterns for the holidays. They’re timeless and you can use them year after year. I hope you love them as much as I do!
I love the darling little hats with big fuzz pom poms and the jolly smiles on the snowmen. What fun they will be to make and hang on your Christmas tree. Or put a few on a wreath, hang them from your mantle, doorknobs, or light fixtures. Folklore says the gnomes are nature spirits and enjoy bringing abundance to your homes. Then we better make lots of them and spread them throughout our home and office!
The pattern is beautifully put together with easy-to-follow instructions with visual tutorials so you can follow each step as you create happy little snowmen and gnomes. Right now this Christmas Ornament Set pattern is on sale for 40% off! But swing by NattyToys shop and view all her awesome patterns!
This enchanting Poinsettia and Bull Wreath will add lots of festive flair to your front door. Created by Kristina from PatternCrochetToys on Etsy, this whimsical wreath is decked with a colorful poinsettia, twilight background, and a darling bull figure casually enjoying the view. I just love it!
The pattern is well-written and has lots of tutorial images to follow. Make this Poinsettia Wreath your own and sew the bull in the center or on the right. Or move the poinsettia flower on the other side. Add more poinsettia flowers! Have fun adding some personal touches. I love the deep midnight blue and white contrast. The hand-sewn twinkling stars add to the ambiance and make you feel all cozy inside. Right now this pattern is on sale for 10% off!
Just like people, gnomes come in various shapes and designs. When I saw this Scandinavian Santa Gnome created by Ekaterina from MikadoCutes on Etsy, I was enamored. He’s so enchanting, I just knew he would be part of our holiday decor this year and all the years to follow. Did you know that Gnomes are also known as Nisse, Tomte, or Tonttu? It just depends on what part of the world you live in! But, they all have similar folklore and characteristics… the welfare and protection of the land, animals, and people! They’re also full of mischief and prankful — just what we need in our home during the holiday season!
This magical little gnome will bring laughter and joy to your world this holiday season. With his portly body, curly white beard, oversized hat, and honking big nose, he will enchant and mesmerize all who see him. And, you’ll feel compelled to many lots of these Gnomes and sprinkle them all over your home. Name them and make them a part of your family! The pattern is really easy to follow and filled with lots of visual tutorials. So get out your hooks and yarn and start crocheting!
