How to Crochet a Teardrop

Save

If you are looking for ornamental accents for your Christmas tree, consider making crochet teardrops. You can decorate crochet teardrops with sequins and glitter, attach a long piece of yarn on the top and tie them to your Christmas tree. Alternately, you can attach earring findings to the top of the teardrop to make unique crochet earrings, or you can make crochet teardrops from leftover scraps of yarn and appliqué them on clothing. You can also make teardrops from fine crochet thread to make motifs for craft projects.
