Crochet Christmas Bells Ornament Appliques

Let me introduce you to the crochet Christmas Bells Ornament Appliques, my new pattern for the Christmas Applique Collection.

Crochet Christmas Bells Ornament Applique - Free Crochet Pattern - Raffamusa Designs

I first used these bells and bow appliques for one of my squares from the Christmas Granny Squares collection. However, these bells are just too cute not use in so many more ways!

So, I made a couple more for one of my DIY Christmas cards, and also a couple to use as simple crochet ornaments for my Christmas tree.

  • Then, turn the bow to the other side and roll the yarn around its center several times. Fasten off and weave in your ends (or use them to sew the bow on your project).

Attach the two bell appliques on your project, and place the bow applique on top of the bells, in the middle.

Weave in all your ends.
