Cork Pine Tree Crochet Patterns

 
 

‘Tis the season to have evergreens on the brain!  I was inspired by these Cone Christmas Trees from Petals to Picots to make my own model-sized crochet evergreens while using up some of the wine corks in my stash.  Add embellishments to the trees to make them into decorated Christmas trees, or leave them plain for a serene winter forest look.

What’s a cork pine tree if there’s no one there to hear them rustle in the breeze, right?  So, there’s Frodo and Mr. Samwise, to give some scale to this project.

Crochet these little evergreen trees for Christmas or for fun!  www.1dogwoof.com

There’s actually 3 patterns here, for the 3 different trees:

  • one to fit a normal wine cork
  • one to fit a champagne cork
  • a stubbier tree that fits a normal wine cork

Supplies:

Green worsted weight yarn.  This is more of a scrap yarn project. You won’t need a whole ball of yarn unless you’re making a forest.
G size hook
Scissors, yarn needle
stitch holder (optional)

Assembly

These patterns should fit the corks fairly snuggly, but it will depend on your gauge.  You can also optionally stuff the top part of the tree, and/or glue the cork inside the tree to secure the crochet piece in place.  There’s no right or wrong answer here, just cuteness!

    Oh my gosh I LOVE this!!!!!! I am seriously going to make some of these this week. I have lots of wine corks lying around (oops….) , and I have been looking for a good ornament idea :) Thanks!! I’ll make sure to share with you once I’m done.

    Hello there!
    This is a wonderful pattern! I’ve been looking for a great Christmas project to share with my readers. Would it be okay for me to share this on my site? I would provide a photo and a link back to your site (they will have to visit your site to view the pattern). Let me know what you think. Thank you!

    Warmly,
    Abbey (for The Firefly Hook)

          That’s the thing with a boy and a girl. I’m going to have two completely different sets of toys in the house. I’m sure we’ll be getting to those girlie things in a few years :-)

      These are so cute! Never thought of Calico Critters until you mentioned it. Going to make them for my two granddaughters who play with them! Thanks for the idea.

    Oh I LOVE these – I wanted to collect those vintage bottlebrush trees but they are so expensive. These are just as pretty and I can make them myself! Thank you for sharing.

      I see those bottlebrush trees everywhere, but don’t know where to find them. If they’re expensive, then I won’t bother looking :-) and just keep making these instead. Thanks for stopping by Ann!

      Haha, thanks Lauren! We received a Shelob set for Christmas last year and the huge spider totally freaks me out, but it came with Lego people – Frodo and Samwise and Gollum. I think those are the only lego people I own right now!

    I do not have any corks and they sure make very authentic-looking “tree” bottoms, but I’m thinking that I might re-purpose a lot of the zillions of brownish-color pill bottles I have left from so much care-giving (washed, of course). They’ll make great quickie “gifts” at the end of this year! After I make a few, I’ll post a photo in my blog and then come here and link to it.
    I’d love to make some for my Etsy shop and if I so, can I do that with your permission if I link back to your page and give you full credit for the idea/design?
    They are so cute…

    These are fantastic, thank you. I have already made a couple and plan to make loads more before Christmas! The only problem is going to be tracking down enough corks…thanks for a great tutorial.
