Bedroom garland

I have had several garlands hanging in my bedroom, from my overhead closets.
Now It was time for a new one. In reddish colours.


I used 8 different colours. Mostly cotton yarn.
First lots of round pieces were crocheted, some two coloured.
I crocheted in most of the ends as I went, so I didn't have to sew them in later.
Leaving just the last end.


Then I crocheted a long red string,
 onto where I sewed the round pieces with their said last unsewed ends.
Then I continued to crochet two strings onto the red string in places.
 A darker red and a purple.
So there were 3 strings in all with round pieces sewed onto them.
- Also called a garland.


Then I fastened the garland onto my overhead closets with tape.
I started up fitting them closer and tighter together,
 but didn't really like it, so I loosened them up a bit. 
Now it is as you see on the pictures.


My bedroom does look a bit like an invasion of an Ikea kitchen.
-Which makes sense since my closet is from Ikea, and it is the same as the ones in my kitchen.
Because of that I try to add something to make it look more like an actual bedroom.
Here the garland comes in, and the painting in the background.

----------------------------------

Which reminds me, that painting really isn't done.
 I will probably end up painting it over with something completely new,
 the next time I get a craving for painting.

I actually haven't got any craft I am passionate about at the moment.
Which is rather annoying. - And a tad boring.
All I can do is to do a bit,
- so I at least don't feel like I am completely waisting  my time.
It is just, since I got all the time one could need,
 it is a shame not to spend all of those hours being creative you see.
Such a waste of perfectly good usable time.

Now I will drink another cup of Assam tea.
Which surely can't be called a waste of time,
but something that renders the day a bit better by each cup:)

  1. I love this idea and I might have to steal it, if you don't mind my saying so! I've been wondering about knitted bunting for a while now but I think this might be a better way to go about it :)
