Aren’t these adorable. Ann and Marie, two of my long-time, super creative, blogging friends shared this idea for a really quick-to-make project. Adorn your Christmas tree with easy-peasy crochet lamb ornaments or use them to embellish your gifts. You can make a whole flock of adorable lambs in an evening.

I wish I could share a link to the original source but even a search on Pinterest didn’t help. I just used a photo for inspiration and directions from Ann’s adaptation.
Sweet little holiday wreaths can be made the same way. Choose a shade of green yarn and embellish with a tiny red bow and/or tiny stick-on gems.
These crochet wreaths are sweet to decorate gift bags or presents. I make 3-inch x 5-inch cakes or quick bread to give as gifts to neighbors and friends. Presented in a small gift bag with a homemade ornament, you have a cute, inexpensive and thoughtful gift.
How to make crochet lamb ornaments
Attach yarn and single crochet around shower curtain ring.
From a piece of felt, cut out lamb head. At first I used fabric glue but found it easier to use a hot glue gun since there is no waiting for the glue to dry. Add a tuft of yarn to the top of the head (sorry, no pic of this).
Cut twigs to 1.5-inches in length and glue into place on the back of the ring.
Crochet lamb ornaments can be made in different yarn but the homespun brand will give it a bumpy/curly look.
Crochet Lamb Ornaments using Shower Curtain Rings
Plastic shower curtain rings
small amount of yarn in color of choice. I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn, color Pearls (shown in first photo)
Crochet hook (I used H-size)
Black felt or color of choice for the head of the lamb. Note: you could also use black card stock. I don’t recommend construction paper.
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
thin twigs or sticks for legs
stick-on rhinestone gems
Tiny red bows or ribbon to make bows
Lion Brand Homespun yarn, green
Close plastic shower curtain ring.
Attach yarn with a square knot where the closure is, leaving a length that you will use for making a hanging loop.
Single crochet around the ring until it is completely covered. The number of single crochet will vary depending on the yarn used. I worked 35-40 single crochet around the rings I used.
When the ring is covered, cut the yarn, leaving a tail; tie a square knot with the beginning length of yarn and then knot the two piece together, forming a loop.
Use the pattern to cut out the lamb head.
Using hot glue, attach felt head to the top of the ring.
Swirl a tiny piece of yarn into a circular shape and glue it to the top of the head.
Cut thin twigs or sticks 1.5-inches long. Attach to the back with the hot glue.
