How I love everything about the holiday season! For many, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. The ambiance, the smells, the music, the movies, the food, the crackling fireplace, and the gorgeous ornaments and decorations. I personally love the aroma of traditional holiday spices wafting through my home when I bake yummy cookies. It puts me in a festive spirit and inspires me to prepare for the holiday season ahead. It’s these warm and cozy things that we look forward to each year. And it’s never too early to start our holiday preparations.

Christmas is only 10 weeks away and most of us like to get a head start on baking, gift making or buying, and of course, decorating. I’m an avid and addicted crocheter, so I make the majority of my gifts. But, I’ve never made my own holiday decorations, so I set out to find the most enchanting and whimsical patterns ever.

My favorite place to look for patterns is Etsy and I found an abundance of adorable patterns for the holiday season. If you are a crocheter or know someone who is, then you will appreciate the skill, effort and work that went into creating these winsome patterns. These are some of my very favorites. Check them out!

There is nothing more fun and exciting during the holiday season than decorating the Christmas tree. Twinkling lights, sparkling tinsel and cheerful ornaments. Growing up we had a lot of Christmas baubles made out of glass or other breakable material. Needless to say, most of them didn’t last long. Crocheting your baubles means you will have them for a lifetime.
