And the year before, I shared:
Cereal Box Painted Faux Metal Stars
This year, I have already begun my tree ornaments and I will surely have another design or two to share. :)
Before continuing with this tutorial, take a look at this one, which explains the technique for this embroidery technique. I used the Long and Short Stitch to fill in the blocks of color of the design below.
- Blocks of fabric with embroidered design on the front
- Scissors, needle and thread
- Crushed velvet fabric
- Lace trim
- Poster board or sturdy card stock
- Strips of brown paper bag
Using the Long and Short stitch, fill in the blocks of color with embroidery floss. I filled in the holly with 3 shades of green; the candle with 3 shades of tan/cream; the flame with both yellow and orange and the ribbon with two shades of red.
