Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm excited to share my crochet pattern for these adorable Christmas Present Ornaments! They are a fun and easy way to DIY home décor or decorate for Christmas on a budget. These ornaments also make for thoughtful gifts. This pattern works up quickly and is made up of just a few stitches! These also make adorable gift tag/wrapping embellishments.
Each ornament is comprised of a single crocheted rectangle with a border and loop hanger. The 'ribbon' and bow embellishments are added afterward. Each crochet Christmas present ornament measures approximately 3 inches tall by 2 inches wide. You could easily create larger presents by using larger yarn and a larger sized crochet hook.

Present Base Pattern:
Rows 1-9: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (9 stitches)
After the chain 1 stitch at the end of row 9, continue working down the left side of the project with slip stitches until you've reached the top row again.
We will add a chain 1 in each corner to keep the square shape.
When we've returned to the top row, slip stitch in the first 5 stitches.
In the fifth stitch, chain 20, then slip stitch in the same stitch again.
Slip stitch in the last 4 stitches, chain 1, tie off with a short tail and pull through the chain stitch to secure.
Weave in the ends.
With the loop hanger at the top and the slip stitch border facing upward (front of the work)
Think of it as creating a giant plus sign on the square.
Create a slip knot on your hook and join in the center row on the far right side with a slip stitch.
Continue slip stitching across the center of the square until you reach the center left side.
Tie off with a long enough tail to weave in the end.
Repeat these steps starting in the bottom center, slip stitching until you reach the top center.
We want to leave a medium tail at the beginning and the end.
Chain 26, tie off
Fold into a bow shape without actually tying a bow.
Taking a new string of yarn, tie a double knot over the center of the folded bow.
Using your yarn needle, pull either side of the double-knotted ends through to the back of the present and tie off there to attach.
Using your yarn needle, weave the ends of the chains through the chains until you reach the bow's center and pull those through to the back of the work and tie off as well.
Trim any excess yarn!
I hope you have enjoyed crocheting this Christmas Present Ornament with me!
