I first shared this post as part of U-Create’s Handmade Ornament Series. But I didn’t want any of our readers to miss out!
Years ago I was really into hand-sticthing. I loved it and have built up quiet the collection (thanks mom!). I’ve started seeing these little hoop ornaments around Pinterest and I wanted to give it a shot. I am so in love with the look and feel like you can do just about anything you want to make these ornaments your own. I decided to try out these Hand-stitched Tree Ornaments.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 in hoop
- small scrap of material
- fabric marking pen, or just a pencil works for me on this project
- embroidery floss
Begin by drawing out your design on your fabric. I just eyeballed what I wanted and free handed it. I promise if I can do it you can too. Just make the tree what you want.
Place your hoop on the fabric and just start stitching. I used a backstitch for this one.
Grab your button and sew that on top too.
You are done. You can readjust your fabric in the hoop if needed. Then you just add some string and you have an adorable new ornament for your Christmas tree. This would also make a great gift idea. These work up quickly and are really inexpensive.
