DIY Christmas Giftwrap Idea for 2 Irregularly-Shaped Gifts

Wouldn’t it be nice if every gift fit into a nice, neat, easy-to-wrap box or packages? Unfortunately, we often find ourselves needing to wrap up things that are odd sizes and shapes.

Crochet Snowflake Potholders: Free Pattern

These snowflake potholders are lovely to have on hand in the kitchen during the Christmas season if you enjoy holiday cooking and baking. Another fantastic thing about them: You don’t have to put them away after December 25 has come and gone — because the snowflake motif makes them suitable for using all winter long.

The snowflake applique can easily be used on other types of projects besides just these potholders — so feel free to use it as an adornment for Christmas stockings, Christmas gift bags, hats, scarves, or whatever other types of Christmas craft projects you might happen to be working on at the moment.

This scarf is crocheted, and it features an interesting variety of stitches to try — yet its an easy pattern that isn’t too complicated, and doesn’t require an extreme amount of exertion for either your brain cells or your fingers.
