3-Dimensional Christmas Tree Patterns
If you live in an apartment and have no room for big trees, you can crochet your own mini Christmas trees and use up your stash by crocheting your own decorations. This subsection includes patterns for Christmas trees that either involve an extra element for the crocheted tree to stand up like stuffing, cones, etc. or require the use of fabric stiffener to hold its shape.
This pattern from Red Heart Free Website uses spools of thread as trunks and two pieces of long wooden dowels or wooden chopsticks to hold the tree up. The construction involves crocheting two separate pieces, stuffing it with fiberfill, and then sewing it closed. Instructions for decorations are also included with a garland, a star, and a circle top. Buttons are sewed on for extra decoration.
