christmas crochet!

this year has proven to be an expensive one, so i thought i would make some gifts instead of buying loads. i love getting handmade gifts and am hoping this is the same for my closest family and friends! the little gift boxes are paper mache ones from hobbycraft that i have covered in paper, and inside will be these crochet decorations cushioned in tissue paper. i decided on crocheting some stockings, wreaths, candy canes and christmas puddings which i think have turned out incredibly cute indeed! perfect for hanging on the tree. they may not have been expensive to make, but they have taken alot of time (but i reckon they'll be liked so it's worth it!)
the patterns for these i got from pottage publishing which is also where i got my crochet starter book and kit! so have a look if you want to learn or make some decorations of your own :)
