Create a cute Peppermint Swirl Ornament with this new cross-stitch pattern! Made with yarn and a round plastic canvas, these peppermints make the sweetest ornaments, gift tags, banners or even coasters!
Today is the 6th day of a Crafty Christmas, which marks the halfway point in my 12 Days of a Crafty Christmas series! Today I’m excited to share these sweet peppermint swirl ornaments and the new cross stitch pattern I created to make them -now available in my shop!
The peppermints are made from yarn and 3″ plastic circles by Darice. I really enjoyed stitching with the yarn and plastic canvas! Filling in the little plastic circles doesn’t take too long and this was a fun twist on the type of cross stitch I usually do – embroidery floss on Aida cloth. The yarn creates really full stitches and makes the peppermints so cozy and soft.
I made my peppermints into ornaments, but they would also look sweet strung together in a holiday banner, as decoration on holiday gifts or even as coasters!
The back of each peppermint is finished with a soft layer of felt or fleece.
I made a few peppermint ornaments using pink instead of red!
The new pattern for these sweet peppermints is now available in my Etsy shop! From now until the end of this series, November 17th, I’m having a sale. Use code CRAFTYCHRISTMAS to get 12% off everything in my shop! :)
