My Christmas "Chicken" Tree

My "Chicken" Tree 

I had made all this last year for Christmas
and to be in full disclosure, I haven't taken it down. It stayed up in the corner of the living room all year. That is how much I love it

I had found a crochet pattern on Ravelry for these rooster ornament. I ended up only making one a rooster (love machine) and the rest to be my flock I have

If you leave off the tail feathers they look like hens.

 So I made them to look like my flock of girls.

Then I added these fake eggs I found at Hobby Lobby,
except the ones in the wooden box at the bottom of the tree, they are real.

 I put the rooster at the top, looking over his hens.

 For garland I use a boa of white feathers.

 I took these pictures on my I-Phone using the camera + app I have.
Sometimes I get some really good pictures

And sometimes I forget to check my photos, a little out of focus.

Here is the flock
Now that I have them on the tree, I believe I could use a few more.
They are easy and really do not take long to make.

I am reposting this one and adding a backlink to a 
Christmas Tree Party

So many beautiful tree to see.


  1. How cute! I love how you used white feathers for the garland. Very creative! I love chickens so I might have to do a chicken tree next year :)

    Visiting from Clever Chicks Blog Hop.

  2. Oh my, hold me back! A chicken tree why didn't I think of that? Love at first sight, you are so creative. Merry Christmas.

  3. Oh man that is too cute! I was getting ready to donate a small tree we have, no way now! Off to buy some chicken stuff tomorrow! That would be perfect in my kitchen :) Wish I could crotchet that well....

  4. love the Chicken tree.......just perfect..........those chickens are sooo cute..........

  5. Hey Kat, I couldn't find a "contact me" spot here. Could I buy a set of your crocheted chickens from you? I can't find any small fake chickens anywhere! Bummer, sob!!! Let me know if that's possible? I can pay shipping too :)


  6. I would love to do this! I went to the site where you can purchase but I just don't know how to crochet other than straight stitches. If I find someone (maybe at my office?) that can help me I want to come back and get this pattern.I love this.

  7. Love it!!! Very festive. :)

  10. Absolutely love your chicken tree. I have a chicken theme in my kitchen. This would compliment it perfectly. Alas, I already have a tree in my kitchen that I decorated with small kitchen utensils, measuring spoons, cups, etc. Now, I know what I'll do next year.

  11. I just put mine up, still loving it!!! :) Thanks again for the hens, they really make me smile....


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
