Valentine's Day Tree Skirt

Last year, I decided that having a Christmas tree up all year and decorating it for different holidays was such a fun idea. So after Christmas, I decided to keep the small Christmas tree up on the buffet in our dining room, and I decorated it 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.

All Done!


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.

    1. Back before I sold my house, we kept our tree up all year too and decorated it for the different seasons - it is such a fun idea and really shows you how you can use just about anything to jazz it up. I am running a year long Granny-Spiration Challenge, and would love if you came and linked up with us :) There's also a yarn giveaway going on right now.
