WILL NOT BE REPRINTED
The Best Wishes Ornaments were inspired from the German tradition of giving a newlywed couple a set of twelve Christmas Ornaments for their first Holiday together. Each has their own symbol and wish for the couple. I loved this idea and converted it to cross-stitch!
The front of the ornament is the symbol, the word or wish is on the back.
Also, included in this chart is a mini sampler that you can insert any of the symbols into and an alphabet for personalizing the "True Love" ornaments!
Be Creative, here are a few ideas to inspire you.
Use waste canvas to stitch the symbols on the front of a sweatshirt!
Use waste canvas to stitch symbols on the front of aprons! This would make a wonderful hostess gift!
Use larger canvas to create a pillow! Or how about putting four symbols on the top of a pillow!
Using waste canvas stitch on denim shirts!
Add beads from Mill Hill to make your ornaments sparkle!
