This idea was brought to me by one of my customers from Australia. She wanted to decorate her Christmas Tree with nautical themed appliqués as she lives next to the ocean. So this year I wanted to decorate our small artificial Christmas tree in silver and white. For the white ornaments I was using ocean themed crochet appliqués.
Materials: I’ve used white crochet cotton threads size 10 and hook 1.8 mm. Also I was using white pear beads size 4 mm and 6 mm. To make your ornaments larger, you can use white crochet cotton threads size 3. Also you can use cotton metallic threads which will give your ornaments sparks.
You will need to block and starch your ornaments. For the Sea Stars – pin each point with rust-proof pins. To hang the ornaments, attach white or translucent thread to the top and tie a loop.
So, for my Christmas Tree I’ve made the following ornaments - Sea Shell, Sea Stars in three sizes, Sea Horse, Anchor, two different Fish and Jelly Fish.
The patterns which I was using for these ornaments can be found in my Etsy shop.
Have a very wonderful Christmas!
