Sharing is caring!

Introducing Boho Christmas Crochet Baubles, a Free Pattern for you to enjoy! My previous designs for Crochet Baubles are very popular and I wanted to add another pattern to the collection for this year. I loved using my stash of cotton to create these Boho inspired cheerful ornaments. If you love decorating in bold colours, with handmade touches and a bit of nostalgia, then these Christmas baubles will fit perfectly with your style. You will only need small amounts of cotton.

Christmas Baubles

You can use plain Christmas Baubles to cover that you will find in stores, or even better, you can upcycle last years tired baubles with new funky bright covers. If you prefer, you can stuff the baubles with toy stuffing and add a hanging loop. The Crochet Baubles make beautiful presents – add some tissue paper to a box, and you will have a very welcome handmade heirloom for gifting!

You can purchase the ad-free PDF version of this pattern on Ravelry or on Etsy. The PDF is designed for printing. Thank you for your support!

Use vibrant folk colours, or traditional Christmas shades to make these bright and cheerful Crochet Baubles. Plenty of texture for extra flair and you have crochet decorations to adorn your tree that you will be proud of! You could include some natural greenery and funky garlands to add to your Modern Boho Holiday decoration.

I could not resist making some Rainbow Crochet Baubles as part of my selection, they are so bright and gorgeous! You can check out the Free pattern for Rainbow Crochet Flowers

Finishing

Once both sections of your crochet ball are completed, slip both pieces on to your ball, making sure the right side is facing out. Slip side one over the cap of your Christmas ball as you can see below.

Using the tail from side 2, sew your 2 sides together, gently stretching on to ball as you go. Insert your yarn needle into a stitch on side 1 and then a stitch on side 2 as you work your way around. Fasten off and weave in all threads.
