Selling your tree ornaments locally on Facebook is a really good way to get started if you are new to making money with your hobby.

Facebook marketplace is the obvious place to start selling your items as you don’t need to pay anything and can reach a local audience.
You can create as many listings as you like for free. The only downside is arranging shipping or pick ups with your customers.
Your Facebook Page
You can create your own Facebook Page and promote your knitting that way. Ask for people to like your page and advertise sales and promotions.
In my opinion, Facebook groups are the best way to sell your handicrafts Join as many local groups as you can. Look for handmade groups, mom groups and neighbourhood groups.
You can add your knitting to business promotions where allowed or respond to requests for unique gift ideas.
Start A Craft Blog
I mentioned starting your own website above and a craft blog is a great way to do this and make money.
You can start a blog and then make money through affiliate marketing, advertising and also selling your own patterns and how-to ebooks.
You can start a blog in conjunction with an Etsy store to really boost your sales.
