Patriotic Star Garland

I just loved making these stars so I just kept making them - and turned them into this festive garland. Complete with starburst poms because, who doesn't like a pom!?




Directions:

  1. To make these up, complete as many starts as you'd like and in whatever colour pattern you prefer. I went with 9 stars. Pattern below.

  2. From there, create a simple cord by ch ~250 stitches or enough to place a star every 8 inches.

  3. Once complete, tie the cord to the top of star point, right in the middle.

  4. Make poms by wrapping warn around 3 fingers with enough thickness so when bound in the middle, there is about 3/4 inch of dept. Make one or many for each end. Mix up the colours... have fun!

  5. Attach poms to each end of the garland

  6. Hang & Enjoy
