O Christmas Tree

I crocheted up a teeny Christmas Ball today using more of the Peppermint Twist sock yarn scraps I had.  This pattern  is Christmas Ball Ornament by Kendra Kadas and is crocheted on a US F hook.  I made a few mods: 1.) I didn't use the string indicated in the pattern.  I only crocheted it with the sock yarn.  2.) I filled it with fiberfill instead of a styrofoam ball.  and    3.) Instead of cinching the top stitches by running a tapestry needle through, I ch 20 and sl stitched the top of the ch with the sc across from the 1st st in the ch and then sl stitched through the 1st st of the ch.

My goal is to knit or crochet an ornie a day to fill up my teeny tree in the living room,  Our large tree in the family room is chalk full of ornies and we have another tree that is even smaller than this tree and is decorated in very teeny, tiny ceramic ornaments.  I thought filling one tree with nothing but handmade ornies would be fun!
