Crochet hearts make beautiful crochet Christmas ornaments. They are such a wonderful Christmas gift for kids, teachers, friends and family. They are easy to make and perfect if you need to make a lot of small gifts for a large crowd.

My crochet Christmas Hearts and Gingerbread Hearts have become popular as gifts for kids at school, for coworkers and for people at retirement communities. Last year I personally made a bunch of Christmas Hearts for teachers at my son’s school.
For Halloween and Fall season I designed Candy Corn Hearts in traditional colors. But did you know that candy corn comes in different colors depending on the holiday?
Christmas candy corn is also called Reindeer corn and comes in traditional Christmas colors – green, white and red.
These Christmas Candy Corn Hearts are made using the same pattern as my Fall Candy Corn Hearts. I embellished them with cute Christmas buttons and beads. You can make these hearts flat, or you can make them three dimensional.
