The most challenging part of the process for me was actually finding a way to photograph the garland for this post!  It’s hard to fit all of the fun shapes, colors and designs into one photograph.  I made three different patterns, one for each of the ornaments.  There are so many fun ways to use these ornaments!  You could make a few and hang them from your Christmas tree or add one to a special holiday packaged, tied up with a bit of bakers twine!
