Gingerbread Dog House Ornament Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

This little Dog House Gingerbread Christmas Tree 
Ornament Crochet Pattern is adorable.
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs 

 It  is designed to look like  a charming little 
Gingerbread House cookie. 

We designed one with traditional Christmas Colors 
and one with bright colors.
And we even designed one in "Frozen Blue Colors"!

These Gingerbread House Christmas Tree Ornaments
 are fun to crochet, and really easy to make.
They make great gift tags, place markers and decorations

If you do not want the dog bone,
they can be embellished in any way you like.
Add Holiday buttons and ribbons or even sparkle jewels.
