My mom used to make a smaller version of these little beauties each year with plastic canvas to create a garland that you can place just about anywhere. She used it on her tree, between the shelves, and across doorways. Once she hung it around the ceiling fan for a completely different decor change. I love this idea, and I can see making several as gifts like she used to.

I love these they are easy and very cute

If you ch 22 then dc in 4th ch from hook then 1 dc in each across doesn't add to 20 dcs. If you ch 24 then dc in 4th ch that's 20 dcs. You made a mistake. Annie Snyder
