Snowflake cross stitch mini wall decor

Winter holidays are all about home, family, friends and a great time spent together. The house is becoming brighter with Christmas lights and warmer with the cheerful spirit.

The shops are full of Christmas decorations but your handmade creations are always so special. I don't have too much time in December so I am always trying to make something quick and easy, just in time for the Holidays. 
I stitched this little snowflake ornament this year and thought you might like to make it, too.
You will need:
a round ornament frame, 2 1/2" in diameter (I purchased mine at Jo-Ann)
Aida fabric, 28 count, Sand
DMC threads, #3842 and # 3841
14" long silk ribbon, blue or preferred color of your choice

First of all, make your stitching (a free pattern below) and trim to fit the frame.

If you are happy with the color of your frame, leave it like it is. If you would like to make it a bit different then paint your frame to your liking. I made mine copper and add some patina as a special touch.
 Frame your stitching, add the ribbon and you are done!

Enjoy your Holidays!
