This year’s holiday collection features a few new DIY ornaments. Along with these winter greenery embroidery hoop ornaments that Emily designed, we have felt acorns from Krista, macrame hoops from Meagan, and felt ball birds from Lia. 

If you’re new to embroidery, this is a great project for beginners. Just follow our template and tutorial below!

(Winter) Greens are Good for You

Our cute, little set of winter greenery embroidery hoop ornaments for Christmas includes three different patterns — holly leaves, mistletoe, and pine needles. All of these designs make perfect decorations for the holiday season. Or you could even craft them as Christmas gifts.

Along with using tiny felt balls as berries for the holly and mistletoe, we love the idea of using clear glass seed beads to look like snowflakes falling around the pine needles. Using our template below, you can make as many ornaments as you’d like for your tree. Just add a bit of embroidery floss to the top when you’re ready to hang them!

Skill level: Beginner
