Materials to make a crochet christmas ornament
For this project you need either mercerized or crafter cotton (no soft cotton because it will fuzz up), wood rings, wood beads, a straight tapestry needle and scissors.
It all comes together quickly, in fact you can make 4 or 5 in a day.
They also look great fashioned into a garland or gift topper for a bottle or wrapped box.

I have a free blue tag gift download if you’d like to replicate this look. Click in the box below to download your gift tags. It is a letter sized document that will work with a thicker printer friendly paper like matte photo paper – I use this one from Canon. Of course you will need a color printer to print them.
Supplies to make a boho crochet Christmas ornament
- Mercerized cotton category 4 yarn like Lion Brand 24/7
- 3.75 mm crochet hook (go down to 3.5 mm if you don’t have a 3.75 mm hook)
- wood beads (find at craft stores, or the blue winter set I am using is from Temu)
- Small wood rings about 1.25″ (I use rings from this set)
- Tapestry needle
- Ruler or tape measure to keep track of length of yarn for weaving
These are the beads I have. They may no longer be available but you may be able to use the description to find something similar or at full retail. Temu is a wholesaler.
If you cannot get mercerized cotton yarn or are on a budget, use a craft cotton, not a soft cotton. Crafter’s Secret, Lily’s Sugar and Cream type is a good crafter’s yarn for this project. Soft yarn will get fuzzy.

Work top part of ornament
Cut a 4 foot length of yarn and thread it on a tapestry needle. Leave 8-9″ as a non working end and begin to work a single strand evenly around the wood ring leaving just enough wiggle room for another strand to be worked in at the bottom.
Join long ends and thread onto a straight tapestry needle. Add beads. Secure top of strands into a knot for hanging.
With long tail from crochet star, loop it around in the bottom center space of ring to look seamless then weave in well to connect to star.
Work bottom bead tassel
Cut 4-5 feet of yarn. Use the tapestry needle to loop it around your fingers between the beads until you can’t fit anymore in the holes.
Thread a single strand of yarn in the top loops and connect them to the base of the star.
Secure with a double knot then slide beads up flush against the base of the star. Trim open bottom ends and cut to desired length.
