Crochet Granny Star Ornament

Thursday, December 5, 2013

It's FINALLY that time of year! It's looking a lot like Christmas and I'm done with grad school for a month and a half. Do you know what that means?? It means I'm going to have time to do all the crafty stuff I've been dying to do all semester long! Woo hoo! I'm a little bit excited. Can you tell?

Anyways, to kick of Christmas break, I decided to share with you these lovely Crochet Granny Star Ornaments I've been making. My aunt actually asked me to make a bunch of them for her first grade class's Christmas tree. She showed me some pictures of what she liked on Pinterest, but none of the pictures came with patterns. So I winged it. Enjoy!

  1. These are so cute! I wonder what other kinds of yarn are out there for these? Maybe some glittery, multicolored yarns would look good with these too.
