I really like this little Twinkle Tree Ornament! I can see adding all sorts of colorful bobbles on it like ornaments. I think I would do it up in two shades of green in that case. I think you could also drape it with gold or red garland. The silver star on this one coordinates quite nicely with the silver band at the bottom but you find a small angel and use it as a tree topper as well with stars all over the tree.

There is no photo included with this pattern. There is also no link to click to get the pattern since the pattern is listed in its entirety here so I cant see the picture from the designers blog either. Not sure what happened, but I would like to see the picture before I spend the time in working the pattern.

These Christmas tree sparkle ornaments are so pretty! Those are exactly the colors I would chose in making them for myself, too. This is an all purpose craft, using crochet and a little bit of baubles and hot glue. It is a nice mixed media craft. Oh! A royal blue and a gold would be very pretty as well.

This sweet little design is perfect for practicing decreasing stitches. The suggested hook and yarn size are great for beginners as both are easy to handle. The pattern itself is short and well written. I teach seniors so I am always looking for simpler patterns for my ladies. These little trees can also hide a special treat (like the new, oversized Hersheys Kisses).

Such a cute ornament idea! I love the little star at the top of the tree! While the pattern is intended to me made into a tree, I think this ornament could easily be made to look like a bell, instead. It wouldn't be difficult to string up a bell and attach it to the inside. You could make a bunch of them and end up with different ornaments!

very nice. wat is the magic loop method?
