From unloved to loved

I'm so excited to share these patterns with you as I know it will bring a huge dollop of cuteness to your Christmas tree decorations.

Hi I'm Jo, I'm a coach and mentor for creative business owners, but I also have my own Etsy shop, where I sell my handmade creations.

Creating, thrifting, and designing is so knee-jerk for me, and not a day passes when I'm not crocheting or making something with my 2 daughters.

I accidentally came up with the idea of making these, when I I was searching for cheap tree decorations. I was lucky enough to find a large bundle of Christmas baubles at a second hand shop (thrift store).

The baubles that I found were a little bit worn out and retro, so I thought that I could give them a new lease of life.

Basic Bauble Materials

19cm approximately bauble (or use stuffing)
3.5mm hook (UK)
E/4 (US)

White, pink, brown, red DK yarn.
Darning Needle
Black Felt
Orange felt
