Christmas Baubles

IMG_6814

There are so many lovely knitted Christmas baubles out there but since I do not know how to knit I’ll had to make my own crochet pattern. So let’s crochet some Christmas baubles!

These are pretty quick to make since they mainly are built up by dc’s  🙂  And the fact that they are perfect if you have kids, that’s just a bonus.
