The Twelve Days Ornament Series by designer Larissa Holland of MmmCrafts is inspired by the traditional holiday carol. We adore stitching these thoughtfully designed christmas ornaments (you can grab the pattern from MmmCrafts Etsy shop!) -but made the color selection process even easier! We selected hues that evoke the original color palette design by MmmCrafts and simplified it to just 10 colors. You can create all 15 ornaments with our 12x18" felt bundle! In this color guide we will share what felt and floss colors we used for each of the ornaments. The pattern and instructions for the ornaments are found at mmmcrafts.etsy.com.
To make these ornaments you will first need the pattern. Head over to MmmCrafts Etsy shop to grab the digital pattern. All supplies, instructions and materials are carefully lined out in the pattern. All supplies can be purchased at www.benziedesign.com.
-Twelve Days Palette of felt -the 12x18" size will be enough to make all 15 ornaments! The colors we used are Pink, Magenta, Burgundy, Mustard, Ochre, Moss, Midnight, Peacock, Swan and Icicle.
-Twelve Days Palette in floss -10 skeins is enough for all the ornaments
-Metallic sequins in Teal
-Seed beads in Teal
-Beading needle, we recommend this embroidery needle
Each guide clearly lists ornament, felt colors and floss colors. You will also noticed that we replaced many of the french knots with either just beads or both beads and sequins. We only used one color (Teal!) for all the beads and sequins in each ornament. Read up on some helpful tips when stitching with beads and sequins here.
