Christmas Crochet Stacked Tree Decoration Pattern

It’s the time of year when the Christmas themed makes start to take over and all other projects go on hold!

I’ve still got a few gifts I need to hurry up and finish but had some time to squeeze in a little tree decoration.

I love this stacked tree, I wasn’t too sure if the idea I had in mind would work but am really glad I stuck with it!

  • 11cm tall, 11cm wide at its widest point.
