Last Christmas I tried to make Christmas gifts to save some money but I wanted the gifts to be nice. Last summer I bought a knotted scarf at a craft show for $25 and thought, I could make this! Then I saw some on Etsy for $45! Thus came the inspiration for my handmade Christmas gifts.
Ready to get started? Wait until the yarn goes on sale. I bought all of the yarn below at Joann's for $28. What you see is what's left after making 5 scarves. Definitely enough to make at least 5 more which would average out to $2.80 per scarf. Remember I paid $25 for the one at the craft show. Pretty amazing huh?
It is very important to get different widths and different textures. The white yarn has a thread of gold through it, the dark green has sequins, the purple is feathery, and the turquoise has pom poms.
