Embroidered Christmas Cards

November 22, 2017

It’s time for another Christmas DIY : the embroidered Christmas cards.

There is two patterns : the “Christmas tree card”, and the “reindeer card”. The reindeer pattern is easier for children since it has less embroidery. The Christmas tree card is more for adults. As usual, you can decorate as much as you want and even create other pattern !

Since these DIY were really popular in the Id Creatives workshop, I decided to write a full blog post on how to make them.

That way, everyone can enjoy and make easy and beautiful Christmas DIY 🎅

CHRISTMAS CARD : EMBROIDERED REINDEER

For this card, the design is different, but the steps are the same : embroider, decorate, then add the ribbon all around the card.

If you want your children to do it, you have to not embroider the paws and the head since it’s a bit difficult. He can draw the paws and the head with a golden pencil.

Use the example above for the measures.
