Today’s project is so easy, I could almost say it is too easy…..
Let me show you the world’s easiest way to create crochet ornaments: by using old doilies or crochet runners. This is the ultimate repurpose of Flea Market Finds: cut them up and use them for Christmas.
Speaking of repurpose ‘stuff’ to use in your Christmas decorating. Day 2 of the 12 Day series is a very special day. We are joining up with some of the best junkers in blogland: Junkers United.
These ladies know their ‘junk’ you will be amazed what they will be sharing today. Just look at some of the awesomeness they have created in the past.
Okay, back to my too easy project of the day. My crochet ornaments that remind me of snowflakes, because, you know, they are white, and airy and seem to float in the air.
And they are so easy……
If you have visited me in Christmases past you actually might have caught a glimpse of these before. I made them a couple of years ago. They were the extras in quite a few posts. They were never the star of the post. They were a bit like the wallflowers, always there to make the belle of the ball look even more beautiful…
I was ready to use them as the prop in yet another photo shoot, when I realized just how good they looked and that I never really shared them with you.
So I decided to put the spotlight on them once and for all and show you how to make them….
I’d show you the steps….
If there were any steps worth showing…..
This is what you do:
Buy a crochet runner at the flea market or thrift store. One with a circle pattern.
Cut the circles out of the runner.
Dunk the circles in a mixture of half water, half dissolved sugar.
Let dry; let dry so long until no longer sticky.
Told you this was easy….
I hope you liked my too easy crochet ornaments. And now you can go and check out what my friends have been up to today…
