After seeing a few awesome how-to's for the garland, I finally got around to making us one. But since I've already made the pinecone garland, this one ended up wrapped around the bottom of the tree. We ran out of tinsel when decorating and I was personally afraid that Gus would attack the tree every chance he got, but the little meow-er couldn't be bothered.
I learned how to crochet a chain (super easy) and tied the yarn poofs onto the chain ::
Because we knew it would look kind of silly being mismatched like that, I tried to drape it over our tripod lamp but it looked kind of dorky ::
So it remains on the tree for now...
Also, the cookies turned out great. I had zero patience for dough-chilling yesterday so I opted to use this recipe instead.
Don't they look delicious? We've each eaten about 4 each and counting.
