Handmade Christmas: Knit Christmas Ornaments

This article may contain affiliate links which support this site at no cost to you.

I love to make knitted Christmas ornaments with leftover yarn from other projects.  This knit mini Santa hat and knit Christmas tree ornament are quick and easy to make.  The knitted Christmas ornaments can also be used to add a personal touch Christmas gift wrapping.

Every year my friend hosts a Christmas Ornament Exchange party just a few days before Christmas.  A few years ago I decided to knit an ornament instead of buying one and I’ve been making them ever since!  Knitted Christmas ornaments are great ways to use up bits and pieces of yarn. Everyone loves receiving them and they make beautiful decorations on gifts.

Knit Mini-Santa Hat

I used this mini Santa hat ornament pattern to make this little guy.  It’s one of my favorites.  Just use whatever red and white yarn scraps you have and any size needle.  Or you could make different colored ones, too!


Knit Christmas Tree Ornament

I really love this knit Christmas tree ornament pattern with all the sequins on it! You could use beads or any other little decorations you want to bling up this knit Christmas ornament.  You just knit this one in garter stitch so it’s really easy!
