Holiday Decor Item

Hello! I am so excited to share to you these projects holiday decor item I made for Moxie Fab World: Decor to Make the Season Bright Challenge.

First, I looked for my cross-stitch magazines "Cross Country Stitching" and found this project! So I started preparing my materials: 2 6x6 14 counts red aida cloth, 2 6x6 white cloth for backing, cotton balls, gold thread DMC for this I used dmc #3855, and #310 and a cross-stitch needle by John James Tapestry Petites and 2 metal or tin plates.

1. Cross stitch the design into the cloth using 2 strands of dmc.
2. Sew the project into the white cloth (see the picture above) and fill it with cotton balls.
3. Secret sew the remaining opening.
4. Attach the project to metal or tin plates with heavy double sided tape. The stitching can be changed seasonally. If you would like it to be permanent, glue it into place.

Combine these charming ornaments stitched for your Christmas tree or as delightful accents in your warm-hearted home.

Thanks for looking!
