Creative Christmas: Simple Snowflakes

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Creative Christmas: Simple Snowflakes

Hello lovelies!!
It's the 1st day of December, which means I'm officially allowing myself to be swept up with Christmassy cheer!! I've been working on a couple of Christmassy projects and have the first to share with you today!
I've been inspired by the sudden appearance of the Christmas markets and also by the frosty weather here in Hamburg.
I've been crocheting with some yummy colours!

Adding bells and ball balls.

I've been pinning and blocking.

Glueing and shaping!

I've been patiently waiting for my project to dry!

I've been hanging my project.

Finally, I've been admiring my project and It truly makes me happy!

As you can see, Simple Snowflakes have been the project of the week. They are definitely adding a glimpse of colour to my now dark and Decembery apartment.

I made these using some creative cotton in lots of glorious shades. They're not traditional Christmas colours, but I like that!
Simply hanging on a branch, in a vase on my table, they have a temporary home until I buy a real Christmas tree.

They were made with a very simple pattern I created earlier in the week. I've added it to the 'Tutorials' section of the blog (above on the menu bar). You can also just follow the link here for "Simple Snowflakes".

They are a fun and really quick project and hopefully there is still enough time before Christmas!
I hope you like the tutorial!! If there are any problems or question about the it, just drop me a message and I'll get right back to you!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
