Are you gearing up for the holidays?! Things are getting awfully busy around here. It’s always nice to have a quick project, especially this time of year! Today I have a super easy and fun Rustic Christmas Tree Necklace for you – and it’s quick and cute all rolled into one little necklace!
This is just perfect for a beginning embroidery project – the stitching is super simple, I promise!
The necklace is framed in this little mini hoop – they are super simple to put together and make such a fun and unique piece of jewelry!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- 6 x 6 piece of fabric
- embroidery hoop (not the necklace – this is just for stitching) – at least 4″
- Disappearing Marking Pen
- DMC Embroidery Floss: Red (326), Green (910), Yellow (726), Brown (869)
- Mini Hoop Frame – 34mm x 62mm – from this shop
Begin by tracing the center piece of the hoop frame with the disappearing ink marker. Place your fabric in the regular embroidery hoop and draw out your tree. You can see that mine is really simple. Just a basic tree in a pot. :)
Embroider your tree by stitching a straight stitch trunk with the brown. To form the tree, just stitch straight lines with the green out from the trunk, at a downward angle. Stitch the pot of the tree with red straight stitches. Add little red french knots to the tree, and a yellow french knot at the top of the tree. If you need help with the embroidery stitches, you can check out my Embroidery Tips page.
Follow the instructions to place the design in the mini hoop. The Etsy shop has great step by step instructions for this.
And that’s it! So sweet right? This would be such a fun gift too!
