Christmas Decoration Revamp

About 8 years ago my Grandma sent me a crocheted tree Christmas decoration.  I'm pretty sure it was something that she made years ago and was passing it along to me.  This Christmas when I was pulling my decorations out I decided it was time to replace the ornaments on this cute little crochet tree.  Some were missing and others damaged as you can see from the picture.

I wasn't sure if I would just knit up some little Christmas ornaments to replace them or if I could find some small ornaments to replace them.  I did find some ornaments, but they were pretty fragile, so I opted to go with red jingle bells.  I think they look perfect and are just the right size.  Unfortunately, the picture doesn't show the red well, but you get the idea.


  1. I think this was from Grandma Pat

  2. Yes, Grandma Pat sent it to me. Do you know if she was the one who crocheted it?

  3. Yes she was the one who crocheted it. She used to make afaghans also. She was one crafty person, glad to see someone like you get her talent. She went through a phase of doing alot of macrame, such as plant holders, fish bowls, and hanging tables
