Hello! I hope you enjoyed the links and inspiration for Day One of the Christmas Countdown.
Looking back to last year and the Planet Penny Advent Calendar I found the little yarn balls which I made as tree decorations which then went on to have decorative use all year round.
This is how they started out…
They then went on the tree…
And eventually found a new life as the Knitting Mobile!
This year I made some slightly bigger baubles by the same method, leaving off the knitting needles and adding a contrasting button on the hanger.
These are made using balloons and I think would work well fixed over fairy lights.
I can’t find a link for this one but I love it, even though it would take oodles of yarn (and patience!)
This little tree is sweet, and makes good use of battery fairy lights which are a much safer option, especially when you have excited little ones around.
And this is a lovely, simple idea. What better time of year than Christmas to count your blessings and put them on a string?
I hope you like these yarn and string ideas. Don’t forget to click the images and links to find out more..
Have fun! See you tomorrow…x
