Christmas Freebie Number 2 of 3!

 Here is a set of three little Christmas tree ornaments for you to stitch in time for Christmas!
Each ornament uses only 3 colors of stranded cotton, and all three ornaments use the same colors.
Stitch a star, a Victorian ornament, and a Christmas tree in red, green, and white on navy blue Aida.

 I finished my ornaments off by:
(1) Backing each one with fusible interfacing;
(2) Gluing them onto a piece of red wool felt;
(3) Gluing the two layers onto a piece of natural corrugated card.

Oh, and I used a little gold glitter glue around the edge of the star.

Then, I punched a hole in the top and threaded twine through for the hanger.  Each ornament is accented with a little satin bow.

These little ornaments measure between 2" and 3" square (approx. ~ actual dimensions are given in the chart).  

Happy stitching and Merry Christmas from Fearn Abbey Needleworks!
