I made up these crocheted circles in the centre of these ornaments last year as I thought this might be a nice addition to my hexagon blanket. But they just didn't pop when they were finished. However, a friend of mine thought they were cute and wanted them for her Christmas tree. It took me a year but I finally got some time to put them together into something 'tree' worthy. I added some stuffing between two circles and crocheted a border. added some buttons and coloured beads and they're all wrapped up for delivery for a Christmas birthday. And yes, the organised beading stash did come in handy almost immediately!
The monkey hangers were from Urban Outfitters and were a UK purchase last year. They're currently residing on a cupboard in the kitchen and we use them to hang shirts after our weeking ironing sessions. Nice and inobstrusive for the rest of the time too!
