  General: Cross-Stitched Christmas Ornaments
  Posted by: administrator

These are two of several Christmas ornaments I made a few years ago. The center design is counted cross-stitch. I designed them to have "points" so they would be shown off by the fabric that surrounds them. These squares of fabric are folded, then attached to a Styrofoam ball with straight pins. I chose fabric for its color rather than design since they end up so small. Then pieces of gathered lace and ribbon are hot glued around the raw edges of fabric, which meet at the outside edge. I used a corsage pin to attach many lace and ribbon bows and a hanging loop to the top of the ball. The large pearl on the head of the pin adds the final touch.

The designs on the back of these balls are the same as the fronts. However, some balls I made had something printed in counted cross-stitch, such as the date, or "Our First Christmas Together", or the name of the person it was made for. I had a lot of fun personalizing the ornaments, and choosing the right colors for the recipients. Giving hand made ornaments is always fun because I get to work with colors that don't match anything in my house. Variety makes the work much more interesting!
