Crochet Christmas Lightbulb Ornament

We love adding new ornaments to our Christmas tree every year. This year I decided to make a crochet Christmas lightbulb ornament to add to our decorations.

This is a very quick and easy project. It also doesn’t use much yarn, so it is perfect for using scraps of yarn leftover from other projects. For this ornament I used some yarn from my stash that no longer had labels on it. I think it was Big Twist Value yarn, but anything similar would work.
