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, include 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!
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!
