A cross stitched gingerbread ornament makes a nice gift. Many people around the holiday season have to stay within a certain budget, and making presents for friends and family is an ideal way to save money during Christmas. Also, we do not hear much talk about crafting sustainability during the Christmas season, but making gifts with materials already on hand saves resources that would have been spent on gasoline used to go to the store and buy brand new items.
People actually do love handmade Christmas gifts, and the remarks received on a cross stitched gingerbread boy ornament can surprisingly be more positive than on a high end TV, which is something anyone can buy at the store. Making and designing an ornament yourself gives a crafter a sense of achievement, and the thrill of knowing this gift is special. Take a look at the video and slideshow to see how this cross stitched gingerbread boy ornament was made from start to finish, which might give you some inspiration on how to create handmade Christmas gifts. Happy holidays, and get crafting today!
