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!
