Star Garland




***

I made this cute little star garland last night while watching TV. It's Big Brother season. Three nights a week of quality reality TV. My favorite!!! Who are you rooting for? I kind of like the dumb girl (Ashley) and the nerdy guy (Ian)... but I'm not sure that either of them can actually win. I have a feeling that when the "coaches" lose their last player they'll end up as a regular house-guest competitor - hence the key slots. Sorry if you don't watch the show and don't understand any of that... but you should really really watch it!

Anyway. I made this star garland to hang on a co-workers door for her birthday... I kind of wish I would have made it for myself ;-)

I made each star individually using this pattern. It involves single, double, half double and triple crochet stitches and was actually pretty simple... after I looked up the last two stitches. I then joined the stars by one point to a strand of single crochet stitches. 16 stitches between each one I believe. I also made little hoops at the ends for easy hanging (you can see one in the first picture).

I thought this would be a nice change from the boring old decorations our work likes to re-use to death... though I'm sure they will still be up.....

  1. Oh the twists. Offer the chance to have coaches go back in the game. I vote NO... cause the whole "coaches" thing is dumb in the fist place. get them out!

  2. I saw something like this on Pinterest and was hoping you would make it. Super cute! If there was time I would totally have you make some for Payton's Birthday Party.
