{ holiday } anthropologie inspired crochet garland

When I was in Austin, Jade and I made a stop downtown at Anthropologie before heading on to the airport.  The window dressing is always something to ooh and aah over, and this time was no exception. 

And what to my wondering eyes did appear, but crochet in the form of garland!  Garland itself!  Brilliant.

Without haste (and certainly without any know-how) I took my seat on the aisle, whipped out my hook and started making some mantel garland of my own.  I'm quite sure the girl next to me thought I was about to start the widest blanket ever.  I kept her guessing.

crochet chain garland

I never got any fancier than a simple loose chain on a 5.5mm hook, but I like them all the same.  I think they'd be lovely in all sorts of colors, draping a tree.

I spy... some Elf feet! & that makes me giggle. :) I love this idea {especially since I'm a terrible crocheter. (Is that even a word?) What did you use for the stripe in between the two mantel moldings? Is that paint or a ribbon??

Emily

I did this with my son a few years ago. He loves to crochet garland! :)

@Stacy: Ha! Yes, elf feet! Hes been resting all day.

The stripe is a previous owners builder upgrade that I am quite sure is a fancy veneer strip. Im guessing you could totally fake that. Esp you! xoxo

What a great idea - you've made me feel like breaking out the kid's spool knitters and setting them to work...
