Crochet is the first craft I learned after my introduction to sewing cards when I was 4. Actually I was 7 when my mom taught me to crochet. I’ve told the story before in a post about organizing my yarn, so my love of crochet I owe to my mom.
I wanted to do some type of yarn-y ornament and when I saw this tutorial for a Christmas star, I knew I’d found the one. The pattern was super easy to follow and I found myself making one after the other. It was a bit addictive and difficult to stop. They crocheted up really fast (10 minutes each) and I’m even thinking they could make a cool garland to hang up on the mantel. Oh the possibilities are endless!
Once again, this is the type of ornament that would make an excellent gift tag as well.
I’ve blogged about my wall tree before (here and here). I have decorations for holiday times, but I want to keep the tree up year round, so I decided it needs to have some birds. I’ve been curating bird patterns and projects on my “Birds, Birds” Pinterest board and plan to fill my tree with a family of birds.
Question of the Day: Do you put your decorations away the day after Christmas or do you wait until after the first of the year?
