  • Tatted Twinkle Little Star

    Note: this item is not shipped
     
    A tatting design by Deb Holladay
     
    Sweet simplicity: a tatted snowflake-star made with light-reflecting thread. This makes a beautiful ornament for a Christmas tree. Make several to give as gifts to nursing home patients, a sick child, or anyone who could use a simple, lovingly made inspiring star.

    Materials needed:

    • Kreinik Medium(#16) Braid in color 032 ( you can also use Fine (#8) Braid in 032 for a more delicate snowflake-star)
    • 20 pearl beads
    • two tatting shuttles (Deb used one areo shuttle and one tatsy shuttle)
    • size 10 or smaller crochet hook for joining if a hook is not on either shuttle
    • a needle small enough for threading the beads, but large enough to thread with the braid

    Instructions:

    Thread on the braid the 20 pearl beads. Then wind the larger shuttle. This shuttle will do most of the work. You can either clip threads or unwind from the spool of thread enough to wind the other shuttle. 

    *With the shuttle with no beads, make an r of 3ds, 3p sep by 1 ds, 3ds, cl r and rw. Ch of 3 ds, 3 p sep by 3 ds, 3ds, does not rw. Pick up the shuttle with the beads on and make next ring as follows. On this next ring, slip up one bead for each r made. R of 3ds, J to last p made on the chain, 3ds, add the bead into the p, 3ds, p, 3ds, and cl r. R of 3ds, j to last r, 3ds, add the bead into the p, 3ds, p, 3ds and cl r. Repeat the last ring. This makes a cloverleaf. Switch shuttles to the one with no beads. Ch of 3ds, j to matching p of last r, 3ds, 2p sep by 3ds, 3ds rw. R of 3ds, j, 3ds, 2 p sep by 3ds, 3ds, cl and rw. Switch shuttles again. Ch of 3ds, slip a bead into the p, 3ds, Rw and switch shuttles again* Continue from " to " till you have 5 points to the star. Tie and trim the edges the way you are most comfortable.

  • Recycled Cards in Crochet

    Note: this item is not shipped

    Skill Level: Beginner

    If you have old Christmas cards lying around-or find a bargain on Christmas cards at a thrift store- use them to decorate everything from Christmas trees to photo albums. Here we've embellished the edges of old cards with colorful metallic thread in a basic crochet stitch.

    Materials needed: 

    • Christmas cards
    • hole punch
    • Kreinik metallic thread in Tapestry #12 Braid, in your choice of colors
    • crochet hook to coordinate with your hole size and braid size

    Instructions: 

    1. Cut card to desired shape or size.

    2. Punch holes in outer edge of design area.

    3. Using your favorite crochet stitch, crochet a border using the Tapestry #12 Braid.

    4. When finished, glue onto a photo album, or use as an ornament.

    Tip: use a different Kreinik Braid size to achieve a different look. The Fine #8 Braid, for example, is a thin thread and will create a "lacy" look. Medium #16 Braid is thicker, and may be easier to use for beginners or with larger crochet hooks.

  • Miniature Crocheted Wreath

    NOTE: this is not a product that is shipped.

    Decorate your dollhouse for the holidays — it's easy to make these fun wreaths for the doors and windows. They also make quick gifts: pins to wear or ornaments.

    Materials needed:
    • white plastic rings
    • Kreinik Micro Ice Chenille in 009 green or 015 chartreuse, or Kreinik Medium #16 Braid in 008 Green or 015 Chartreuse
    • crochet hook (choose a small hook size)
    • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in 002 Gold
    • #22 tapestry needle

    Instructions:

    1. Single crochet around the ring using the green metallic thread. When you get to the last single crochet, connect to the starting single crochet with a slip stitch or chain stitch. Knot off.
    2. Thread your tapestry needle with a 6-inch piece of 1/8" Ribbon. Come up from the back of your wreath at a top point. Thread the other end of the ribbon in your needle and come up from the back (so now you have both thread ends of the 1/8" Ribbon in the front). Tie the ribbon into a bow. Add a jingle bell if desired.
    3. As desired attach a pinback, magnet, or double-sided Treasure Tape dot (if attaching to a dollhouse).

  • Ornamental Crocheted Scarf

    Note: this item is not shipped

    We found these inexpensive animal ornaments at Target, but they were calling out for some personality. The answer: crochet a mini metallic scarf. It just takes minutes, and adds so much fun to the ornament. 

    Materials needed:

    • purchased animal ornament
    • Kreinik Medium #16 Braid in desired colors (we used 015 Chartreuse for the sheep, and 002 Gold for the deer)
    • Crochet hook, small to medium sized depending on the size you want your scarf
    • Optional: lightweight yarn in red or white*

    Notes:

    * For the sheep, we combined a red/white cotton yarn with the 015 Chartreuse Medium Braid

    For the deer, we used the Medium Braid by itself

    Instructions:

    Chain at least 40 with your Braid or yarn combination. You may need to make the length shorter or longer depending on the size of your ornament.

    Turn, skip 2, double crochet along the chain. Tie off. 

    If desired, use remaining thread to make a tassel at the ends. Tie around the neck of your animal ornament.
