Flower Ornament

When I originally designed this flower ornament I was going to use it as part of a summer curtain that I wanted to crochet. But then I ended up moving again, and so that plan fell through. Maybe one day I’ll get around to finishing it, but for now I’m going to share these as Christmas tree ornaments.

My pattern tester, Kathy, shared her ideas on what you can do with this ornament. Here is what she said:

“I can imagine hanging a bell in the middle or sew seed beads on, or crochet a holly leaf and berry or Poinsettia embellishment and attach where the chain takes off from.”

“They would look nice with a photo in. There are endless ideas for one simple design.”

Thanks Kathy for allowing me to share your ideas with my readers.

I used a size 3 crochet thread to enable me to add more details without bulk. To add sturdiness, I used a couple of plastic rings from water bottles. You can use any kind of ring from whatever material you have on hand. Or try your local craft store for some store-bought rings.

Regardless of what you choose, you can customize this pattern for different-sized rings.
