Yarn Stars. The Perfect Last Minute Ornament or Decoration.

Yarn stars 2015

Yarn Stars make beautiful, very last minute ornaments for holiday decorating - tree ornaments, garlands, gift tie-ons, hanging in windows. Diane at craftypod and I had a little yarn star making playtime with family and these were the results.

As you can see, even if you sort of lose your way and go a different direction, as long as you are consistent, the star should work out. Notice the cool open weave of the grey and red star above. I love it!

Scandinavian Christmas You Might Have Missed!

Scandinavian themed Luminaries

So sorry for the disappearance. But it looks like I may be back for the remainder of the holiday season. At least I hope so!!!

Since most of us are waaaaaay too busy during December to keep up with our blog reading, tutorials I have shared in the Scandinavian Christmas series December 13th to December 24th on the Pickled herring blog are often missed. I thought I would share them here and now - right when we are all still eagerly seeking out Christmas inspiration!
