Free Crochet Pattern- Picture Frame Christmas Ornament, Hanging ornament

  It's so lovely to hang ornaments that bring memories of years gone by!  My parents have passed now,
and so when I hang ornaments with their pictures, it feels as though they are part of our Christmas
celebrations.  I see them hanging in the tree, and my heart warms at the thought that their spirits are
still here with us!

So I have some of these picture frames with photos of my son and daughter, and my siblings, and I have some of pets that have passed on as well, as they were an important part of our family life too!

So here is the pattern, for you to make your own!
They are quick and easy, and work up in 6 minutes or so!
Happy crocheting!
