How-to: Christmas ornaments and mantel scarf
Combine the 25 countdown stocking ornaments and one mantel scarf for an impressive decoration.

You'll find nine different ornament shapes in the In-the-Hoop Crewelwork Christmas Ornaments Embroidery Designs Collection. These ornaments stitch up quickly—no sewing required. Ornaments range from 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" to 4" x 4" in size. The classic scalloped mantel scarf is approximately 9-1/2" x 59-1/2". Red buttons are positioned above the scallops to hold the ornaments.

The look of traditional hand stitching is achieved using the 12 spools of wool-blend Lana thread found in the handy Crewelwork Christmas Ornaments Thread Pack.

Supplies:
1/3/4 yds. Ivory Felt Fabric (NN0161)
Note: this amount is enough to complete 27 ornaments plus 25 countdown stocking ornaments and one mantel scarf.
27 Red Buttons (B524367)
Note: Additional fabric/supplies will be needed for additional ornaments or larger mantel scarves.
