Before the holidays pass us by, make a little time for this DIY project. Elevate a vintage holiday handkerchief to wall art status with deceptively simple techniques, metallic thread, and a handful of shiny seed beads.
To make this project, you’ll need:
1. Iron all the fabric before you begin. Secure a pretty part of a hankie in the embroidery hoop.
2. Embellish the fabric with straight stitches made with metallic thread to add sparkle and contrast.
3. Sew on a sprinkling of seed beads for texture and dimension.
4. Trim the excess fabric and gather it behind the hoop. Cut a circle of white felt. Use the hot glue gun to secure the felt to the reverse side of the hankie.
It’s time to deck the walls! Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you!

The needle work really makes the pattern pop! I love the texture it adds.
