Framing Christmas Ornamenta

Hello, all! I’m making cross stitch ornaments for our family for Christmas this year, and I’m looking for ideas on the hanging frame. I could do them cushioned or with a plastic cover, I just want them to look nicer than a wood hoop or wood frame. I’m wondering what y’all have used successfully in the past. Thanks!

    I use the gold frames. I have a collection of different sizes and different shapes. I got them at A.C. Moore when they were sold for $1.00 each (now they are $1.49 I believe).
    I had a coupon for 25% off sale and regular price and used my $10.oo rewards. I'm stitching ornaments for a craft fair and don't have to purchase any! If you want to make them a bit more special, you can tie a ribbon bow around the hanger. Go to top

      Great idea! There isn’t an AC Moore close to me, but I found two packs of the gold frames on amazon for an affordable price, so I grabbed up several. Thank you, ma’am! Go to top

        Good! Thanks for the acknowledgement ( as I sit here this afternoon stitching my own ornaments in those gold frames)! Go to top
