Five Christmas Ornaments You Can Make with Scrap Yarn

Ever since I discovered Lion Brand, it has become one of my go-to places for free craft patterns. All of their patterns use yarn but not all of them require you to be able to knit or crochet. The best part is the patterns are all free.

Here are five ornaments you can easily make with the scrap yarn you’re sure to have lying around the house.

1. Festive Santa

This festive little Santa ornament is a cutie. It’s an easy crochet pattern most beginners could make.

2. Amigurumi Santa

If you want a Santa with more detail try the Amigurumi Santa. It’s also labeled as an easy pattern. Learn how-to make other amigurumi with The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amigurumi.

Snowmen are always welcome decorations in my winter home and I just love this sparkling snowman holiday ornament. Isn’t he cute?
