Crochet Bunting

So... our christmas colours are a somewhat unconventional teal, purple and hot pink. with some white/silver in there for good measure. I find that the traditional colours look lovely and festive on cold dark winters nights, but seem quite dull in Perths bright (if unusually stormy) summer days.

If you've been reading for a while, you may remember the wreath I made for the door (which is now on the mirror after I spent my days pinking up felt circles from the drive, and has been replaced by our old purple tinsel and bauble homemade wreath on the front door) and the cushions (which have a matching table cloth and coordinating table runner).

This year I added a couple of extra bits to drape over our picture shelves.

 The top one is simply felt circles sewn together in a chain.

The lower one is a range of stars I crocheted... loosely following a pattern the first time to understand the process involved in making the tip of the star and then freestyling :D
Hence they are all different- some look more like starfish, with wavy arms, some have 6 points (must have missed/added stitches somewhere!)
Then just threaded onto some white sparkly yarn thats too thick and fluffy for me to be able to crochet with yet!
