Today I started working on my gift list. As I made these cute ornaments, I decided to turn my project into quick tute you can follow as well. These little ornaments can be made in your choice of colors and can also be made into a garland. Keep in mind that this DIY does require beginner crochet skills. Enjoy!
1. yarn – whitefor the triangles, 3 contrasting colors for the braid 2. gray embroidery thread
3. scissors 4. pushpin 5. yarn needle 6. embroidery needle 7. silver glitter 8. cardstock 9. glue
Crochet 5 single crochet triangles.
Using the contrasting colored yarns, weave a 25″ long braid. Tie a knot to only one end of the braid.
This take a little patience, but thread the open-ended braid (the end that wasn’t knotted) through the yarn needle. Run the braid close to the top of your crochet triangle. Weave through the triangle in a zig-zag pattern. Make sure to leave a 5″ tail, so you can make a loop to hang your ornament.
Cut some mini triangles from cardstock and paste them to form stars. Once they’re dry, apply a thin coat of glue to each star’s surface and generously sprinkle glitter onto the stars until they turned into glitter hillets. I let them sit there for a bit and then removed the excess glitter. With a pushpin, I poked two holes in the center of each star.
Loop the braid’s tail end and hide it to the back of the triangle. Sew the stars to the top of each traingle with the embroidery thread, making sure to stitch in place the end of the braided tail.
And that’s it! A super cute gift that’s simple and quick to make!
