I think having a Christmas tree up all year and decorating for different holidays is such a fun idea, so I'm giving it a try! After Christmas, I decided to keep the small Christmas tree up on the buffet in our dining room, so now I've got it decorated for Valentine's Day. And that meant, it needed a new tree skirt to match the Valentine's Day theme, so I crocheted one.
First, I crocheted nine pentagons in hot pink, light pink, and red.
These are the pentagons after I weaved and trimmed off the tails.
Then I crocheted around each one in white and joined the with a whip stitch.
Then I decided to crochet the middle with red, and I added a button.The button is just for looks.
I added zig zaggy rounds in hot pink, light pink, and red. Then I crocheted hearts to add to the points on the skirt.
The tree is all "dressed" and ready for Valentine's Day with it's red and pink ornaments and crochet skirt. I put my mitten ornaments on the tree in pairs like people holding hands.
