Merry Mistletoe

The ornament measures 6.7cm (2 5/8”) in diameter excluding the hanging loop.

 

* level 1* – Beginner

 

Merry Mistletoe is an ideal first project if you have no prior experience with raised embroidery.

The sprig of Merry Mistletoe was inspired by a gorgeous Liberty print cotton featuring mistletoe and holly.

The design is embroidered with stranded silk threads onto a ground of pale blue-grey silk fabric, using a limited variety of common embroidery stitches. The detached leaves have wired edges and the berries are created by wrapping glass beads with silk thread. Fine metallic thread is used to add sparkle and highlights within the design.

The ornament hangs from a simple twisted cord hanging loop and is backed with the Liberty print cotton that inspired the design. A sparkly glass bead edge and pretty silk ribbon bow adds festive highlights to the finished ornament.
