Somehow we're already into the holiday season so it's the ideal time to start planning ahead for ways to decorate your home for Christmas this year. Since the current pandemic will have everyone spending more time at home, it's the perfect excuse to turn your house into a cozy little winter wonderland. 

There are so many adorable DIY projects to try during the Christmas holiday but we are particularly excited about trying out these crochet Christmas trees.

The sky is the limit! Here's a good resource with tons of free crochet patterns that are all Christmas themed. We definitely need to try out this ghost and pumpkin bunting next Halloween.
