Hello Simple As That readers! I’m Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling, a craft DIY blog. I am so excited to guest post today and am sharing one of my new favorite projects. Today I am sharing a how to create a Simple Cacti Embroidery Box.
Wooden Embroidery Box (I found mine at Target)
Embroidery Thread or Yarn
Paint in similar colors of thread
Before starting this project, I quickly drew out on the inside cover of the Embroidery box what my design would be. This helped me keep track of where my next stitch would be. (I highlighted in color for you all to see the design a little better.)
I also painted the basic colors on the front of the cover. However, if you use yarn for this project, instead of thread, it will fill in the space a bit better and this step is unnecessary.
I mostly used a simple Back Stitch for the outlines of each shape and then to fill in the spaces, I used a Satin stitch.
I did another simple Back Stitch in a light orange for the main flower and for the center I used a French Knot.
