Merry Christmas Embroidery Hoop Ornament Pattern

Jessica from Cutesy Crafts is back with us again today sharing a beautiful Christmas Embroidery Design with you! She’s turned this Merry Christmas hand embroidery pattern into a mini Christmas embroidery hoop ornament! She’s even included a video to help you learn some of the stitches used in the embroidery design. 

Merry Christmas Embroidery Hoop Ornament

Every year I make some new Christmas ornaments for our tree. Since I’ve been doing a lot of embroidery lately, I decided that my tree needed a little embroidery hoop ornament.

I came up with this simple Christmas embroidery design and framed it in a three-inch hoop. The perfect size for a Christmas ornament!

Hand Embroidery Instructions

This pattern is pretty easy to stitch up. It’s a tiny hoop, so you just need to make your stitches nice and small. The small leaves are a mix between a fishbone and satin stitch.

You can see how I make them in this video.

The lettering is a back stitch. I did two rows of back stitch for the thicker parts and a single row for the thinner parts and the little berries are French knots.

How to Assemble the Ornament

When you finish, you’ll want to back your hoop with a round piece of felt, so the back of your stitches doesn’t show. You can stitch the felt on or use hot glue.

If you use glue, just make sure none of it gets on the back of your embroidered fabric. Tie a small ribbon around the top to hang your ornament. Melt the ends of the ribbon with a lighter or use a product to keep them from fraying, and you’re done!

I hope you enjoy making this embroidery hoop Christmas ornament. I can’t decide if I want to give it away as a gift or keep it for myself, I’m leaning towards keeping it. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Hi, I’m Jessica, and I blog at Cutesy Crafts.  I’m a stay-at-home mom to four cute kids, and I love all things crafty!  My blog is filled with all kinds of crafts, mostly for my kids and my home. I believe that handmade items are special because of the details and special touches that a machine can’t reproduce.  For that reason, I’m also a big fan of hand embroidery.  I hope I can inspire you to be creative!

  1. Ditto to everything Patti wrote: Love I, want it, can’t seem to get it. Once I finally had access to the free printables (after signing up for the newsletter multiple times), the wreath printable was no where to be found. Sigh.

    1. Were you on the sewing templates page? It’s there, it’s in order by date so just make sure you’re scrolling to the bottom. Or hit the sort button at the top to sort by newest first.

    1. It’s not the newest, that’s the oldest. They are in order by date. You can sort by date descending if you want, just click descending/

  2. I was not getting the Merry Christmas template either. I did read everything that all has posted and even followed what Melissa commented on. It just keeps me looping back to the main page and then back to the Sewing Template page. I finally DID GET IT!!!!! I had to go the boxes just above where the patterns are …over on the right is a box that says ASC DESC — I clicked the DESC button and Poof! It was on the top!
    Happy Stitching! 🙂

    1. Thanks,
      If you’ve been to my site before your computer loads an old version of the site to save on speed. Clicking the sort by buttons will force a new page to load. Usually the stuff you want is at the bottom, since it’s new. So sorting by date descending should bring it up.

  3. Hi, I’m new to hand embroidery, so this is probably an obvious question. How do I transfer your pattern to the fabric? I’m going to try to include it on the bodice of a dress for my daughters. Thanks for any help!

    1. Most people use a lightbox (or a bright window) and a disappearing ink pen designed for fabric. I like to use Frixion Pens.
