There’s nothing more fitting to make as a card than our Christmas Tree 2016 Cross Stitch pattern.
At 50 x 70 stitches and with eight colors, this is a fairly quick design to stitch so it won’t take you long and if you outline the baubles in glitter or holographic thread for a finishing touch, then it will look fantastic on a friend’s mantlepiece.
Trees were first brought indoors as a fashion created by Prince Albert, the German Prince Consort to Queen Victoria because it reminded him of his homeland. The trend caught on quite quickly and before long little fir trees were being imported or grown all over the UK.
These days pretty much everyone has a Christmas tree, whether a real one or a fake one which you can pack away and bring out again next year!
Our Christmas Tree 2016 Cross Stitch pattern has the tree standing in a red pot on a blue mat and the baubles are red and blue, although you could change them for other colors if you prefer. The tree is topped with a glowing gold star.
You can make a larger version of the Christmas Tree 2016 Cross Stitch pattern
This design has been stitched on 16 count white Aida but if you want to make it a little larger you could use 14 count Aida, or a little smaller then try 18 count Aida. As usual, we’ve chosen to make it in DMC thread because we think the quality is second to none.
The Christmas Tree 2016 Cross Stitch pattern is a design that calls out for some extra special treatment so you could buy gold aperture cards so that the finished work of art has a luxurious feel.
We have lots of other Christmas designs on our website, some of them are really quick to make and others take a little bit more time, but we’re sure that you’ll enjoy making them as much as your friends and family will enjoy receiving them.
