I signed up for a few ornament exchanges this year, and decided on crocheting up a Santa Bauble. I debated on whether or not I wanted to add arms to this bauble, but I figured that if I added arms then it would look weird without a head and I knew I didn't want to add a head to it. Hehe. After a few minutes of brainstorming, here's what I came up with! I am very happy with it, and plan on making a bunch more to give as gifts this year. Materials: - Small Amount of Worsted Weight Yarn in White, Red, Black and Gold/Yellow - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn (colors links above) - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook - #18 or #20 Tapestry Needle - PolyFil to Stuff (I stock up on mine from JoAnn's when it's on sale) Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love. PolyFil is very affordable and comes with a lot. Alternatively you can use cotton balls or yarn scraps. If using cotton balls, your baubles will come out more stiff, take more time for shaping and I caution you to watch how much you put into your bauble because it's very easy to overstuff. Time Spent: I was able to complete my Santa Bauble in about 30 minutes. Though this project has some techniques that aren't considered beginner friendly, I break down everything in this PDF making it easy to understand and work. PDF is All Photos version. It contains 7 pages, 7 photos and full written instructions. A Main Photo version is also available which contains 4 pages and 1 photo with full written instructions.

I can be described as a “craft, coffee and cat addict”. I began my crafting journey more than 10 years ago with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thanks Aunt Arlys!). In 2014, I jumped head first into crocheting and jewelry making, and my blogging journey as EyeLoveKnots, named in honor of family members affected by Retinoblastoma - a cancer of the eye. I currently craft part time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback - hoping to make it to full time soon! I can also be found on, where I have begun a craft directory!
