These are the 4th set of Christmas gifts I gave to my children. I saw this pattern yesterday, and I think it's pretty nice. Moreover it's simple and quick to make. There's also a video tutorial on this pattern. I make a green and white Christmas tree, as my son always likes the tree to be covered by snow. I also crocheted two stars to sew on the top of the trees, as my son also likes to have the star on top of the Christmas tree. My son already hung these Christmas trees on the garland. I am going to crochet two angels next. Image: The small Christmas trees for my children

These are quite cute and look simple enough to make. I don't think I could work with a hook as small as the one you had to use to make these though.

Yes, these are very simple to make. You can make with a large hook. It's just because I can buy the very thin yarn easier locally, so I have to use a smaller size of the hook. I wish we can buy yarns here as easy as in US.

@kaka135 I'm sorry you can not buy yarn as easy as we can here. Are there no groups either online or in your area that you can trade yarn with? That would be a solution for more yarn.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I finally found a way to buy from China online. The yarns are cheaper. I have seen many beautiful yarns on LionBrand and some other websites online, those yarns are not too expensive, but I am sure the International postage will be very expensive if they send the yarns here.

Your handicraft Xmas tree is brilliant. I think you can make trees in more colors also.

They are adorable - I don't do any crocheting or knitting or anything. You could probably sell them!

Thanks. I just learned how to knit, crochet and also sew in these three years, because of my children. They are give me lots of motivation to learn something new. I hope I will be able to sell my craft work one day, so I can bring some income to my family. But now I'd like to find time to make some to my friends' and neighbors' kids first.

Thanks. Yes, I am thinking I might just need to make some Christmas ornaments these two years, then we can use them for many years.

Thanks. As I do not want to spend money buying gifts or decorations, and I'd like to teach them to learn to DIY as much as possible, so I am making these to them. I am hoping they will be making their own when they are older.

The making of ornamental trees seems to be very popular these days.

They are cute. When my son was little we did the Christmas tree in all stuff that we made it looked very nice.

Wow you are talented and patient, to crochet is one of the hardest things for me to learn although mom has tried a few times, I just don't get it, maybe it is the patience thing . . . am not quite that either

Thanks! Yes, I think knitting and crocheting help me to be more patient. It took me quite some time to learn crocheting, as I was learning online by myself. I gave up a few times because I couldn't get it. Glad that at last I managed to learn the basic techniques. My children are actually my biggest motivation to learn something new.

I think a few years later, they will want to learn how to make the little tree. They probably want to make something for you when they grow up.

They already made something for me, by sewing and finger knitting. Actually the plan or curriculum is to let the children learn knitting in grade 1 and crocheting in grade 3, of course it also depends if the children are already ready for it. This is actually why I started to learn knitting and crocheting.

Yes, the pattern is simple and quick to make. The star is quick to make as well. Now I am making another 12 sets for other kids.
