Crochet around a rope light to create a light-up rug. Good for; Christmas tree skirt, seasonal decoration or just because it's really neat. No instructions in the link, just follow a pattern for basic flat spiral and stitch around the rope light.
2014 Ornaments. I like to send along a crocheted ornament with my Christmas cards each year. I made these tree ornaments with Aunt Lydia's size 3 thread. Embellish however you like. You can find the free tutorial (it's in Dutch) and the diagram pattern here: http://ellebel5.blogspot.nl/2013/11/tutorial-kerstboompje-nl.html
