Edgings and trims make a nice finishing touch for festive projects. I crocheted this edging in Christmas colors, making it extra appealing to use on holiday designs. However, there are bunches of interesting color combinations you could use for crocheting this edging. I offer suggestions suitable for different holidays, and I'm sure you'll be able to come up with other interesting looks as well.

Forget visions of sugarplums. Cupcakes are so much trendier these days, and they're also cute motifs to use for decorating your kitchen. This is especially true during the holiday season, when baking and cooking are likely to be a primary focus of the festivities.

There are many fun cupcake-themed items you could make for your kitchen (and your home) using our free cupcake square pattern. This potholder is adapted from that design; and free patterns are available for both the potholder and the square itself. Feel free to use the square for making other coordinating projects if you like.

Button Necklace in Christmas Colors

A gorgeous damask-inspired button is the focal point of this elegant Christmas necklace. Since it's relatively quick to make, and the materials are inexpensive, this is a fabulous project for holiday gift-giving.

Christmas Flower Necklace

This necklace was originally designed in pink and yellow. By changing the colors to red and green, and adding a bow embellishment, the necklace is transformed into a merry and bright Christmas decoration for the wearer.

If you're going to spend your holidays in a warm-weather locale, or if you want to start crocheting your Christmas projects in the summertime, this pattern is an especially good choice - it can be worn or made comfortably in any season.

Holiday Sparkle Beaded Bracelet

If you make this pretty bracelet for a Christmas gift, the recipient will be able to wear it all year long.
