X-mas cheer

X-massy chrocheted jar decorationLast year I made these cosy crochet jar decorations in X-mas-style for the first time. They make great hostess gifts and I love personal touches in a little present like this.

For the holly leaves I found this excellent pattern (Attic24 is always súch a great source of inspiration). I used either buttons or a small crocheted circle for the berries and added a tiny bead here and there. Then I just sewed them to the ribbon I’d already attached to the jar, and ta-dah!
How to make the green/white/red jar trim (most right position, first photo) is shown here (I just used christmassy colors).
The pattern for the red crocheted cover can be found here; the one for the red/green/white-cover is a simple 5 chains/1 sc/5 chains-repetitive.
