Snowflake Ornaments

This was such a fun project!  I completed four of the snowflakes, there are five in the kit.  I wanted to use the blue thread for the last one, and I didn't have enough, so I will save it for next year.  This sparkly Japanese embroidery thread is so beautiful!  The tree that they are hung on is a tree that I use for autumn, holiday, and for winter decor- the style of it transitions nicely between the seasons, and I display it in different area of my home each time.  I originally purchased it at Pier One one year with the autumn decorations.  

Included in this kit was the wool for the snowflakes.  I attached the snowflakes using heat n' bond.  I used different types of embroidery stitches on each one, but really love the delicacy of the feather stitch, one of my favorite stitches.  I found myself trying to think of different stitching ideas since I was so tempted to use the feather stitch each time!  To hang the ornaments, I braided some perle cotton thread that I had with one strand of the shimmery thread.  The braiding did take quite a bit of time, but I really liked the delicate results.  They are perfect to hang on my winter woodland tree!
