Autumn Quick Stitch Frame Decoration

I love autumn decorations! Here is a simple idea to combine embroidery with your fall decorations.

Find a frame that you would like to use for your embroidery. (I found a framed saying from Hobby Lobby that was on clearance.) Remove the back so that you have just the board to mount a picture on. Stitch out the size of the design that fits best into the frame on fabric that will comfortably cover the board. Once the embroidery is finished and threads trimmed, stabilizer removed, I use Mod Podge on the board to secure the fabric. I did not Mod Podge on the top on this particular design but for a bit of a shine, use Mod Podge on top as well. When it is dry, replace the board in the frame. I hot glued decorations around the frame to add texture and interest. Make a whole collection!

Christmas Advent Calendar

Here’s a project to get a head start on! There are so many memories tied to the advent calendar that we had when I was a child. It was a must have tradition for my own children. I love this calendar because it incorporates many mini embroidery designs. So many designs can be made festive by just using the right thread colors.
