Crochet Baubles are great, because they are fun to make and can be a true game-changer when it comes to Christmas decor. Think about it as an eco-friendly project, so instead of buying plastic ornaments, just make your own.

Try my other super easy project – if you make Star-Shaped Flower in white or gold, it will become lovely last-minute adornment! You can add it to the gifts, or make a garland.

These crochet baubles are soft – it means, that they have a stuffing inside. You can find patterns that work over the existing plastic or glass bauble, but not this one.

If you have crazy home animals, who like to destroy shiny things, or a small baby, who can’t resist touching your decor, these baubles are a great solution!

Psst… This project is fun, too. I promise!

If you like this blanket, be sure to try out my other patterns, because they are great for beginners, too! For example, Sleepy Bunny Lovey can be a sweet amigurumi project, and it’s available for free!

Get to work!

It’s a fantastic project to use up any leftover yarn ends that you have laying around. That’s what I did – I mixed and matched the colors!

You may want to know how to change colors, too – check out my article on How to Change Colors in Crochet for more info. If you like, use Standing Stitch to start out each new row, instead of turning chain!

Let’s start!

before you start

  • sc blo = single crochet in the back loop only
  • hdc blo = half double crochet in the back loop only
  • sc inc = 2 single crochet stitches in one stitch (increase)
  • hdc inc = 2 half double crochet stitches in one stitch (increase)
  • sc dec = 2 single crochet stitches joined at the top (decrease)
  • hdc dec = 2 half double crochet stitches joined at the top (decrease)

The final shape of the baubles depends highly on the way you stuff them, so be sure that they are nice and pulp!

I recommend using at least two colors for these baubles, because otherwise the spikes and details will not be visible.

Let’s begin!

  • change the color each row in the sequence you see in the photos, or choose your own colors!
  • numbers in the brackets indicate the overall number of stitches in each row. 1 chain stitch at the beginning of the row DOES NOT add to the overall number, because it’s a turning chain.
  • instructions between *asterisks* should be repeated as many times as it’s indicated right after it.

almost done!

If you want, you can make a LOOP, so that your crochet baubles hang nicely on the tree. How to do it?

Don’t cut the yarn, and instead make 20 chain stitches. Attach them to the bauble with slip stitch forming a loop, then secure the knot and hide the thread.
