Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments

For all my fellow cross stitches out there, check out the super easy Christmas ornament project below!  It's a fantastic way to preserve your cross stitch projects and it also makes a cute little handmade gift.

Cross stitch whatever design you want, then hot glue inside your embroidery hoop, like below.

Trim the fabric from around the hoop, then set it on top of a piece of felt.  Trace around the outside of the hoop with a pen or pencil, then cut out the felt circle. 

Mount the felt on the back of the embroidery hoop with hot glue and then add a holiday ribbon to make in to a Christmas ornament!

PS: If you want to make this same little reindeer, here is the pattern I made
