This flat Crochet Christmas Tree Wall Hanging idea came about when I saw a triangle shaped wall hanging. The thought of making a Christmas tree shape then came to mind. How could I make the idea more modern though?
Over the past year I have seen wood rings incorporated into fiber art designs. Lucky me I had some wood rings on hand already. I am so happy that this design happened on the first try with little to no frogging!
This design also uses my very favorite crochet stitch. That stitch is the Spider Stitch. To some, this can be a difficult stitch at first. If you find it difficult to work and need some tips to help, you can visit my post about the Spider Stitch HERE.
I also like that this design uses a bulky weight yarn. One of the samples uses Lion Brand Color Made Easy and I think it adds such a nice defined look to the holiday tree.
To make this crochet Christmas tree wall hanging stand out even more you can decide if you want to follow the instructions when it comes to adding beads. I have come to love how nice projects can look when beadwork is added to it.
You can also decide if you want to add the star or just leave the wood ring as is. If you decide to add a star then you will need 2 colors for this project.
