Your walls will love this fresh take on embroidery art. A cherry tree branch stretched across two linen canvases lends a whimsical, spring-perfect touch to this living room. See the project's beautiful details below, plus get the free embroidery patterns for your own design!
Birdhouse and Flower Pattern
Cherry tree branches extend across a pair of linen canvases. Tightly stretch white linen across assembled 36-inch stretcher bars; staple to back of frame. Lay jute twine across the canvas and shape into branches, tack with small stitches, and wrap with gold cord. Download the flower and birdcage patterns and trace them onto linen, and straight-stitch with assorted fibers.
Salvage a faded page from an old book (or photocopy one at a light toner setting), and use it as a background for this framed embroidery. Download the prism pattern below, trace it onto the book page, and stitch the outlines in aqua, black, and bright pink. For added ease, pierce stitch holes through the paper with a sharp needle before stitching.
