1. Christmas Tissue Box – Free Crochet Pattern

Santa Tissue Box Cover Crochet Pattern

The first crochet Christmas idea is this very festive Christmas Tissue Box Cover. While decorating for Christmas this year and after unloading bin after bin of Christmas decorations and placing them everywhere, my husband said to me: “You know what really makes the house feel like Christmas?” It’s your Santa Tissue Box Covers. I never noticed how unfestive our Kleenex boxes were before!”

Get your tissue boxes ready for the holidays or make them as a unique Christmas gift.

2. Christmas Dog Bandana – Free Crochet Pattern

Santa Dog Bandana Crochet Pattern

Whenever we have company over, Charlie likes to wear a bandana. For fancy occasions, he wears his Tuxedo Dog Bandana. But during the holidays, we never really had anything festive for him to wear…that is until I designed this Christmas Dog Bandana. This pattern can be made for cats or dogs of any size.

4. Christmas Baby Booties – Free Crochet Pattern

Santa Baby Booties Crochet Pattern

Add this free Christmas Baby Booties pattern to your list of free Christmas crochet patterns for babies! What I love about this Christmas Baby Boots pattern is that they can be worn on a baby or used as a Christmas decoration. When it was my daughter’s first Christmas, they kept her little feet nice and cozy (and festive) and now that she’s not as little of a baby anymore, we fill them with candy canes.
