Crochet Tutorial: How to Crochet Around a Ornament

This project is a simple how-to on crocheting around an ornament. This is a revival of a vintage art and bringing back those homemade ornaments from days gone by. How lovely would it be, as a crocheter, to decorate your tree in a variety of these. It is the perfect way to showcase your work during the holidays! These also make wonderful gifts! Imagine the look on someone’s face when they receive an entire box of these gems!
