Austerity Christmas Continues


More handmade christmas tree decorations with a knitting theme.They’re all really easy to do! For the bauble just wrap some festive coloured yarn around a standard bauble DSC01188until it’s all covered (you could just ball up some yarn without the bauble but that could end up being a bit heavy for hanging off a tree. Then take a couple of cocktail sticks, push a bead onto one end, snip off the pointy bit that sticks out through the bead DSC01197 and Bob’s your (slightly fuzzy due to poor macro on my camera) Uncle!


For the mini-knitting decorations knit up a bit of fine yarn on small needles and transfer on to the cocktail sticks. Sew in the cast on tail, use the cast off tail to create a yarn ball for the needles. Add a hanging tag (I did this by threading some silver yarn through four of the stitches on the cocktail stick needles and tying a knot) and you’re good to go!
