When my friend told me that she wanted to decorate the baby’s nursery in a star theme, I knew I could create the perfect applique to use for decorations. This easy crochet star applique is just big enough to make a statement, but small enough to be adorably cute for whatever you use it for. The free pattern is all yours and can be used to create a ton of delightful little stars.
Since my friend is having a little girl, she wanted to decorate the nursery in yellow, pink, and red. So, I whipped up about a dozen of these easy crochet stars for her to hang from the curtain rod in the nursery. I slipped a delicate ribbon through one of the points on each star and then helped her hang them up. They look so cute and really complete the look of the room.
In addition to using the stars as room décor, you can use them to decorate your bags, add them to headbands, or crochet them together to make a decorative banner. If you slide a small dowel through a star, you could use it as an accent piece in a planter or flower display. I’m sure you can think of other uses for them too!
Depending on how you want to use them, you can use cotton or synthetic yarn. My choice is always cotton, because I love working with it, but you can use whatever you have on hand. It doesn’t take too much yarn, so you should be able to make a bunch of them using leftover scraps of yarn from other projects.
This easy crochet star applique free pattern is perfect for beginners, so if you’re new to crochet, this would be a good pattern to try. For my more seasoned crochet friends, this pattern can be done in about 10-15 minutes. It’s quick and easy and makes a great addition to your crochet repertoire.
