Have a very crochet Christmas, and make yourself some snazzy crochet baubles! DMC have come up with a fantastic pattern to fill your Christmas with crochet, and their crochet yarn is perfect for the job. I love these little baubles, as you can use the same pattern to make hundreds of different varieties just by changing the colours and beads/ribbons for decoration.

To Assemble Bauble
Place covers over bauble, they need to be stretched slightly to give a neat fit. Sew the two halves together, with the bauble inside, using matching threads.
To decorate baubles there are numerous ways that you can use. Sew on beads or sequins, add a piece of ribbon, gold braid or lace around the centre joins of the covers. Add glittery bows or anything festive that you may have to hand. Use narrow Fillawant ribbon to thread through the top of the bauble as a hanging loop.
