This is the second tree in my O Christmas Trees series. I wanted to post a different style of tree from the first example and this worked perfectly.
Once again, it starts with a simple shape – a triangle. The triangle was drawn on 18 count white mono canvas. I think this would look great on coloured canvas as well. It measures about 3 inches. Remember when I told you that these trees would be easy, fast and simple to stitch. Well, this one uses only three stitches – straight, back and cross. Marie used two colours of Kreinik size 8 braid left over from some scraps. Behind the Kreinik braid is Colour Complements Colour #18 which is a very popular blend of greens. The tree border uses the same colour in a size 5 perle cotton. The trunk is Colour Complements Colour #57 – a blend of browns. You can take a closer look by enlarging the photo.
This could easily be finished as an ornament for the tree or gift tag.
That completes tree #2. More to come. Have you dived into your stash yet to create some Christmas trees of your own?
