Uses for Corks Part 1 - Christmas Trees

I've been saving prosecco corks for well over a year now, my intention is to one day make a cork board, but in the meantime I thought I'd find another use for them and cover them in crochet, as you do! Here is my quick and easy pattern to make them into Christmas trees. Hope you find it useful!


Cork Christmas Trees

You will need:
3mm crochet hook
1 ball green 4 ply cotton yarn
(I used DMC Natura Just Cotton)
Prosecco cork
Sequins

Abbreviations: (UK terms)
ch - chain
st(s) – stitch(es)
dc - double crochet

Work in continuous rounds
Ch 2
Round 1: 6 dc in second ch from hook (6)
Round 2:  (dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (9)
Round 3:  9 dc
Round 4:  (2 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (12)
Round 5: 12 dc
Round 6:  (3 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (15)
Round 7: 15 dc
Round 8:  (4 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (18)
Round 9: 18 dc
Round 10:  (5 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (21)
Round 11: 21 dc
Round 12:  (6 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (24)
Round 13: 24 dc
Round 14:  (7 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (27)
Round 15: 27 dc
Round 16:  (8 dc, 2 dc in next st) three times (30)
Round 17: 30 dc

Fasten off and weave in ends. Sew or glue on sequins and pop on your cork, put a little polyester stuffing in the top if needed.

Makes a sweet little Christmas table decoration. Pop a name card on them and use to label your place settings.

I would love to see your makes, tag me on Instagram

Happy Christmas! Flo and Dot
