My Granny Square Twinkle Star Garland

Doesn't this Granny Square Twinkle Star Garland sparkle in the sunlight hanging outdoors!

I made these stars using the very talented and fantastic Michelle's The Royal Sisters Twinkle Tutorial (posted here).   I posted about making my first star (here).  These are super easy to crochet.  I blocked them with spray starch to give a little body and strung them with pretty ribbons.  Two have vintage red buttons attached to their centers (...because in the middle of project I ran out of red yarn).  LOL!  All made with my favorite yarn - Sugar n' Cream Cotton yarn using a F hook.  

And here are some close ups...

And individual close ups...

I'm looking foward to making more of these garlands - Michelle has Grandma tutorials for several different shapes - Snowflakes, Christmas Trees, All Rounds and of course, the Twinkle (star), and just new All Square.   Please hop on over and visit Michele's blog (here) to see her lovely crochet items and have fun trying her tutorials out.

I'm in love with these RED, WHITE and BLUE stars!
