Cross Stitch Christmas Tree Ornament

Simple, yet effective.

Just stitch your design, then fold and crease it so that the corners meet and stitch the edges neatly.

Attach a little bling to hang from the bottom & a string to hang your handiwork from the tree, and you're done!

Did you know that the red "petals" of the poinsettia are really leaves?

The actual flowers are the tiny yellow parts in the centre of the bloom.
