Making these handmade baubles requires minimal effort and has beautiful results.
Materials Needed for Crochet Baubles
Here is a list of the things you’ll need to recreate the ideas mentioned in this roundup.
- Wool: Grab some wool or any other yarn for crocheting the bauble. If you have small strands of scrap wool, connect them for a multicolored version. For an extra effort, try creating a polka dot effect. Another tip to keep in mind: you can use yarn of any weight. However, it will affect the size of your bauble. The thin yarn would be a smaller bauble, and thick yarn would be a larger bauble. Some options of yarn include merino wool, British wool, cotton yarns, or alpaca.
- To create the loop, you’ll need some leftover ribbon. You can use the same yarn as that for crochet.
- Fabric Scraps for Stuffing. Collect some waste threads, fabric offcuts from sewing, or even an old clothing item. You can also use some waste plastic packaging. These will be used for stuffing in your Christmas Crochet Bauble.
- Grab Christmas greeneries, herbs, or fragrances for a scented version of the baubles. These make a perfect holiday gift.
- Crochet Hook: you need a 4.5mm hook for a thinner yarn and a 5mm hook for thicker yarn. Remember, bigger the hook, looser the crochet, and bigger the bauble. If you are a beginner, a 6mm crochet hook with thick yarn is recommended. You won’t need a crochet hook if you are weaving the bauble.
- Stitch marker: You can use a regular safety pin or save rounded pins found on garment tags.
- You’ll also need a large darning needle for finishing the bauble and attaching the loop.
- Finally, you need a pair of scissors.
