Photo Snowflake Ornament

I love working with crochet thread to create delicate and beautiful Christmas ornaments.  Growing up I admired all of the wonderful crocheted tablecloths and doilies that were made by my grandmother and on display throughout our home.  I love how the simplicity of the thread allows for the stitches and the shapes they form to be the “stars” of the project.
