The classic, re-imagined as the 12 Days of Florida Christmas ornaments. Needlepoint and cross stitch pattern book provides clear, easy-to-read charts that make it so easy to whip up these adorable ornaments quickly. Create the complete 12 Day collection, or select a a few to give as gifts. Perfect tropical holiday style!
Each ornament reflects a different aspect of life in sunny Florida. From the official state bird to beach babes to rockets, each design is a special tribute to our beautiful tropical surroundings.
Using 18-count fabric or canvas, each design is approximately 3″ wide by 5″ long. If you prefer 14-count, each design is about 4″ wide x 6″ long. I designed the ornaments using 18-count with four strands of DMC floss, but the options are pretty much endless! Try using metallic threads and a few beads to add some holiday sparkle to your 12 Days of Florida Christmas ornaments. The more you play with these and indulge your creative side, the more fun you will have! Ornaments can be made in marquise or oval shapes.
