We’re almost halfway through October now, and while we haven’t yet celebrated Halloween, we’re already thinking about Christmas: what we’ll be cooking, where we’ll get our tree (and what type of tree it’ll be) and, of course, what decorations we’ll put up.

While we love being reunited with our Advent calendars and ceramic villages, Christmas decorations are always more fun if you craft ’em yourself. That’s why we’re absolutely in love with these crocheted Christmas trees—and think they’re a perfect choice to deck the halls this holiday season. Here’s how they’re made!

Can Anybody Make Them?

First, these wee Christmas trees are beyond adorable. The mini ornament beads? The bows on top? Aww! They’re each about 4 inches tall and 2-1/2 inches wide, and that cute, sparkly ribbon actually serves as a hanger so you can add the tree to your actual Christmas tree. Of course, you don’t have to use it as an ornament; they’re definitely able to stand on their own.

But the best thing about these tiny Tannenbaums might be how easy they are to make. Even if you don’t frequently crochet, you’ll be able to make them—they come with pages of instructions as well as a boatload of step-by-step images to guide you. And of course, you shouldn’t feel beholden to making a green tree; you can pick whatever color feels most festive to you!

Where Can I Find the Pattern?

If you’re ready to start creating a cute forest of multicolored Christmas trees, the pattern, complete with the instructions and guide images, is available on Etsy for $3.99.
