One of the greatest attributes of needlepoint accessories is that you know it was crafted by a person and not a machine, something you can’t say for most things these days. If handcrafted needlepoint looks great on belts, why would it not look just as good on Christmas ornaments? The answer is that it does look just as great as shown by the Needlepoint Christmas Ornaments by Smathers and Branson ($25).
Smathers and Branson has taken it’s signature images from its line of needlepoint belts and embroidered them onto Christmas ornaments that should be gracing your tree this winter. These ornaments are a simple and easy way to make sure your tree shows off your personality. The hard thing here is limiting yourself to just a few. The following are some of my favorites from the line.
Nothing beats an American Flag on the tree
As close to my golden retriever as I can find. (Seriously goldens need to be included with yellow and black labs)
This one could easily pass for a Notre Dame ornament.
