Crocheted Christmas Trees 12.12.12

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Crocheted Christmas Trees

Just a quick little post from me today as I'm already falling behind on my list of "things to do".
I just had to stop and tell you much I am getting into the spirit of things!!! I bought my Christmas tree yesterday and spent the evening decorating it (pictures coming soon), the Christmas decorations are out of storage boxes and stockings are hanging from the drawers! I get excited just thinking about returning home from work tonight to my Christmas tree with its twinkly lights :-)
Now one of my Christmas decorations I simply must share with you, are these lovely little crocheted Christmas trees.
They are a real favourite of mine and I love seeing them sat perfectly on a table or on top of the drawers looking out over the apartment.

I have four in total, ranging from a very tiny light green one:

Up to a much darker and more substantial one:

They were actually made a few Christmases ago with an amazing pattern by June Gilbank. Despite being a few years old they always come out of the storage box looking fresh and as festive as ever.
They are topped with cute little stars that simply shine Christmas cheer!!

Sat on my chest of drawers amongst a scattering of pine cones

I imagine them to be grouped together deep in a forest surrounded by frosty snow.

They are one of my favourite decorations and very worthy to be shared with you lovely people! I hope you liked seeing them!
Speak soon!!!
