Oh Christmas Tree Cross Stitch Pattern on Kincavel CrossesWell, it’s about that time of year to start thinking of Christmas trees! Maybe you already have yours up, and are on to the next challenge – stitching trees. This roundup is for you because we’ve found lots of Christmas tree stitching inspiration out on the web!

This Christmas Tree Pattern on Kincavel Crosses is pretty glorious – using a mere 4 shades of floss, it’s a striking pattern that looks lovely and quick.

 

Sheep Day Cross Stitch Pattern on The Little StitcherThis sweet Sheep Day Pattern on The Little Stitcher looks absolutely gorgeous as an ornament.

The pattern is so elegant and beautifully designed that you may overlook the fact that it only requires 2 DMC shades to complete – DMC 3865 and 3371!

Christmas Tree Embroidery Free For All on Funk and Weber DesignsFor those of you looking for a bit more freeform embroidery, try out this Christmas Tree Embroidery Free For All on Funk And Weber Designs.

The design combines two DMC greens – 501 and 503 in the needle and uses overlapping piles of straight stitches to result in this lush, textured embroidery that looks gorgeous trimmed in gold, red, and white french knots. The finished project is attached to a keepsake bookmark, and it would make a lovely ornament as well!
