I was excited to see these table top trees and a little disappointed when I followed the link to here and see there is no picture of them. There is also no link to follow to get the pattern to see the picture there because the pattern is shown on this page. Editors, could we please get an update on this post with a picture or a link to the pattern?

I have the same issue. I am a visual person and need to see stuff before I get a good grasp on the concept. Would appreciate some pictures. Thx

I love this pattern. We don't have real Christmas trees in Kenya so I love the idea of making tonnes of these fun and easy Christmas tree decorations to represent the Christmas tree. What a way to get into the Christmas spirit especially if you use fun colors and get your glue gun and glitter in hand.

This is a really cute pattern. I like adding the cardboard circle and felt at the bottom so it will stand up nicely (have a flat bottom). I also like using the buttons for decorations - I have a lot of those! But I could also see crocheting a chain of shiny yarn or maybe red sock weight yarn to drape on the trees, just stitch it occasionally to hold it in place.

Adorable!!!! I did a row of sl st at the end before finishing off so the edges curl in a bit and the felt base isn't as noticeable. As a person who cannot afford to purchase lots of decorative holiday pieces, I was ecstatic to find this pattern. Lovely 3
