Quick and Easy Rustic Star Garland

  Psst… looking for a quick holiday decoration? The other day, I wanted to fill out an area on my tree and always wanted to do something with Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in the Starlight colorway.

Finally, I decided to make up a quick and easy star garland – like seriously, with this chunky yarn it takes minutes to get a star made! The subtle sparkle with…

Roly-Poly Winter Gnome

  I have to admit, I’ve never been the biggest fan of the winter season. It’s cold, dreary, and then there’s the whole snow thing… did I mention it’s cold?

    Well it’s July and what you know what that means – it’s time for Christmas in July!

The story goes that the pickle ornament is hidden on the tree, and depending on the version of the story you follow…

I used red and green for his hat/scarf, but feel free to substitute whichever colors you want to make them in. Size E(3…
