Knit Holiday Star – Shine On This Holiday Season!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This Knit Holiday Star will help you deck your halls with merry and joy! Plus it’s super fun to decorate with trim and beads.

Change up the colors to fit your décor or holiday theme. You can even make a bunch and hang them across a doorway or up stair railings. Of course, the Holiday Star also makes a lovely doorknob hanger. It’s also perfect for dorm rooms or other small areas where a tree isn’t workable, but you still want some festivity.

Products for this design were provided by Furls Crochet, Fairfield, and Clover. All opinions are my own.
