Free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern

Free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern to stitch up and gift this year! Embroidery hoop ornaments are easy and fun to make, and this snowflake embroidery design uses a simple back stitch that anyone can sew. #diychristmasornament #christmascraft

With about a month and a half left until Christmas, you have plenty of time to stitch up a few ornaments with my free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern! Sewn with a simple back stitch, this would be a perfect first embroidery project for someone who has always been wanting to try it out. I added sequins and seed beads just for fun, since I had a bunch left over from this ornament that I made last year.

I designed this as a part of the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home.
