Just got those school pictures back of your kids, now here's a nice little picture frame ornament for your loved ones this holiday. It uses Kreinik Heavy (#32) Braid plus sequins and spangles to capture the sparkle of the season.

(Here's another idea: get together a group of crafters or kids to make several frames for a girl scout troop or for a nursing home, whose residents would be delighted to have their picture taken and inserted into an ornament.)

Materials needed:

  • two 5m spools of Kreinik Heavy (#32) Braid" in 091 Star Yellow
  • 7-mesh plastic canvas (such as QuickCount┬« by Uniek). You will need to cut pieces for the following: one front = 27 x 29 holes, one back = 13 x 17 holes
  • Sequins and spangles: four 3/4" green leaves, six 1/2" red flowers, two 1/4" green rounds
  • plastic canvas needle #18
  • scissors, small pieces of nylon thread for the ornament hanger, and craft glue (such as Jewel Glue by Delta)
