Christmas Medallions Pattern

I love Christmas trees, Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments more than any other part of any other holiday.

My ornament collection keeps growing! I am so excited to add these sweet crocheted medallions to my Christmas ball and vintage snowflake granny.

Elegant in spirit, these pretty little medallions look wonderful on my tree and also on spare winter branch.

Pretty ornaments made with your own two hands seem to me to embody the very spirit of Christmas!

It will only take 10 minutes of your day. What do you say?
