Crafting with recycled materials is always a rewarding venture for me. It is truly taking trash or otherwise useless material and creating something new. The new item can be a work of art that is pleasing to see or repurposed into something useful. In this case of recycling plastic bags, I have crocheted some Christmas ornaments that I affectionately call my plarn star Christmas ornaments.
Below I have two different sets of Christmas stars, one is crocheted with recycled plastic bags or plarn and then the other matching one is done in acrylic yarn. The granny stitch stars are both made using the exact same pattern that can be found here granny star pattern.
Here is the other set of Christmas stars that I crocheted. One using just a single green plastic bag cut 1 inch wide using my plarn-making tutorial and the other crocheted with regular worst yarn. These little Christmas stars were crocheted using this free Christmas star pattern.
As always, happy crocheting and Merry Christmas!
