Day four of the 12 days of Wrapping series brings you the Cross Stitch Christmas Tree. This is a very simple, but elegant way to add a special touch to your package for that important someone and the special gift.
Here’s what you need:
- Gold DMC Floss
- Silver Wrapping Paper
- Painters Tape
- Tree Template (provided by me below)
Step 1: Place the template onto the top of your wrapped box with painters tape.
Step 2: Poke holes with your needle at the tops and the bottoms of all the X’s where you are going to pull the needle through. This will make it much easier to pull the needle through when cross stitching the package.
Step 3: Cross Stitch the entire pattern. When finished, tape the end of the thread on the underside of the package.
Step 4: Take a pair of embroidery scissors and trim away the template.
There you have it! A twist to the traditional wrapping approach with some basic cross stitch. Hope you enjoyed Day 4.
