There's nothing better than putting up the Christmas Tree to get you in the festive mood and bring up some happy feelings and memories!
There is no reason to wait until December to decorate...let's cheer up our days with Christmas lights and decor!
I love to mix DIY ornament with traditional holiday decorations to add a personal touch to my tree.
This year I wanted to create a colorful, but at the same time easy to crochet, ornament. I love the one of a kind shape of my crochet ornaments and I love the fact we can still play with colors to create something unique that could match the overall style of our Christmas decor.
I used the super soft 100% Organic Cotton by Babytoly for this project.
I love the fact that this yarn is drug and chemical-free and it's one of the healthiest and safest choice when it comes to yarn if you want to protect the environment!
It comes in 23 beautiful colors that it is hard to choose from! Go take a look at their website and you'll be falling in love with this cotton, I promise!
