What materials did you use? Crochet cotton, size 10, in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - 1 per 10 feet of garland; 8 mm beaded garland in desired length; and a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook.

What are you most proud of? I decided to add a buttonhole at the end of the garland to make it easier to connect multiple pieces depending on the size of the tree. Doing that, I realized the garlands could also be made as shorter lengths and worn as a bracelet, necklace or even a belt! I had a great time making these!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes a little getting used to crocheting between the beads of the garland but it's a fun project to make! The instructions are given for 10 feet of beaded garland, but the garland can be made in any length, from bracelet size to as long as you want. Be sure to count the beads first to make sure you have the correct multiples for the specific garland pattern. This pattern is available for $3.00 and is written in U.S. terms.

absolutely wonderful, I like the idea that it can be made into bracelets, necklaces etc. I was also thinking of maybe hairbands. lots of possibilities, and really take off and do so much.

Thank you! I had a lot of fun with these and figured why just decorate the tree?
