8th Annual Family Christmas Ornament
Year 2007: Photo Frame
This had to be the easiest ornament of all and lots of thought went into this because I was rushed to create something. You see, in the summer of 2007, I married Prince Charming and therefore had absolutely no time to stitch anything really detailed but skipping a year was simply out of the question!
Since the summer was filled with photo taking, I figured I needed to make something to display a photo on the tree. Such a parctical idea.
I didn't bother looking for a pattern for a photo frame, I simply used my imagination! I had plenty of mini plastic stars and used two stars per frame. I cut out an insert in the middle of the front side, but stitched the back side complete. Each star was unique in colour ... I really like when I can swap colours!
I stitched the photo inside the frame. When I made these frames for my maternal aunts & uncles, I stitched a "couples" photos inside the frame so when they received it, their photo was already in it! I also made them for my nieces & nephews since I hadn't done any cross stitch ornaments for them this particular year. So cute!
