More Christmas Stars

Here are more of the stars we created for the Christmas party. Four of us worked on the stars. I added ribbons, bows and beads for the final touches.

Mark suggested I do some with gold and silver yarn.

I used the specialty yarn that as fibers sticking out all over on some of the stars, mostly around the edges. It required a lot of patience. On this one I doubled the yarn. It took a long time, but it turned out fun.

I tried using the specialty yarn on the inside of a star. I did three parts and that was all I could handle. It was actually a kind of scarry looking star. I filled in the rest with regular yarn and added ribbon and beads. I even glued ribbon around the edges. It’s the star at the top. It kind of reminds me of a favorite pet.

I tried to find yarn with interesting textures. I think this white yarn looks so pretty. It’s simple, but elegant. For the bow I used ribbon left over from my daughter Catherine’s bridal flowers. It went really well with the yarn.

Here are some more variations. I have to admit the black fringe on the top gray star wasn’t too effective.

I liked these stars. I filled them in at an angle and used several different yarns.

Beads, bows and berries.

Gold, silver, white and shiny red.

Bows and beads.
