Hooked on Christmas Trees
Dear Beginning Rug Hooker
When I think about Christmas, my thoughts turn to Christmas trees. I love having a little tree in each area of my home, decorated in a theme. Best of all is the main tree in the living room, laden down with our precious family ornaments, so it stands to reason that once I started rug hooking, I would add hooked trees to the mix.
There are many beautiful, simple ways to design and hook or proddy a tree. Using the basic template provided here, you can make a tree to fit any corner of your home. Enlarge the pattern to whatever size you want. Then draw whatever suits your fancy. Take ideas from the fabrics, wallpaper, or a collection you might have.
