Quick and Easy Reuse Project! Make Beautiful Holiday Decorations Using Old Baskets!

P1090585

My unglamorous beauty shot! But I don't think it takes away from how cool these turned out!

My little recycled basket ornaments were inspired by two internet friends - Margit whose blog Papirklip og Aesker is full of the most wonderful Danish inspired, downloadable paper ornaments and Heather whom you all know from Dollar Store Crafts.

Nearly Instant Ornament Idea for the Knitters on Your List - Including YOU!

P1090565

If you need a quick little gift for a knitter - grab that bit of leftover yarn from one of your recent projects and wind it into a ball about 2" in diameter.

Cut two wood skewers 4" to 5" long.

Glue a bead on the end of each skewer and you are done!

Easy ornament gift for kids to make for teachers, grandparents, aunts ... and for you to make for mothers, sisters, and friends!

And a great little ornament for your own tree - make one for every project you have done this year!

Making a Six Side Woven Yarn Star of David for Hanukkah!

P1090619

Got an e-mail from Nicole a few days ago asking me if I had ever figured out the weaving pattern for a Star of David - I mentioned I was working on it in the Yarn Star tutorial I published last December.

Actually - I had put the project on the back burner where it had remained until I got Nicole's reminder! ACK!  This tutorial wasn't on the schedule! And I wasn't planning anything this complicated to post right now in my busy season!
