Brighten your holiday season with whimsical embroidery inspirations. The ways you can display machine embroidery designs are countless. Go with a consistent theme like the Santa Claus tradition, a floral theme, or a more traditional design grounded in the birth of Jesus. Choose a theme and find embroidery designs online to suit your taste.
Supplement your yearly Christmas decorations with embroidered creations. Place an embroidered Christmas skirt over the base of your Christmas tree. Try a design with different colored wrapped presents, a jack-in-the-box, elves, or a Santa Claus. Place a pattern on stockings hanging from a mantle or around a fireplace. You can place a name, initials, or a relationship—mom or dad—on the stocking. You can have a bone embroidered on a stocking for your family pet.
Hang embroidered patterns throughout your home. A scene of Santa Claus and his reindeer or dancing snowmen bring a little humor to your living area décor. Strike a more serious note with a pattern of the nativity scene. Bring a little Christmas to your chairs and sofa by adding embroidered coverings to your cushions. Patterns of holly, poinsettias, or bells can be used for the Christmas season. You can add levity with an embroidered Grinch or Scrooge on a cushion.
Use embroidered patterns to brighten your table for your Christmas dinner or Christmas parties. Many patterns can be used to make a beautiful tablecloth. A white Christmas tablecloth with red bells, green holly, or blue snowflakes will add a flair to your table. Use a similar pattern with your place mats and table runner. If you have a buffet-style dinner or a counter for desserts, add a covering with embroidered cookies or gingerbread. Your Christmas napkins can have an embroidered figure like a bell, snowflake, candle, or star, or you can have your family name embroidered in red or green.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Your holiday decorations can extend to bedrooms. Add an embroidered pattern to sheets, pillowcases, or bedding. You can have embroidered patterns for your towels in your bathrooms. You can add a whimsical design to your toilet seat cover.
You can add embroidery to your holiday clothing. You can place a pattern on your blouse or sweatshirt that makes a statement about you. You can go with a floral pattern with a poinsettia or holly. You can pick a pattern of Santa Claus, an elf, or the Grinch. You can have words, like peace, joy, or love, embroidered to invoke the spirit of Christmas. You can add an embroidered pattern, like a green Christmas tree or a red bell, to a white scarf. You can have your robes embroidered with a small Christmas tree or a bell.
Embroidered patterns can be hung throughout your home. You can have patterns hung with inspirational words. You can go with funny quotes or sayings that have special meaning to you and your family. Think of how many patterns you can have of a Christmas tree—a tree in a pot, a decorated tree, a plain green tree, or a tree of multiple colors. You can have an embroidered pattern of an animal—a cat, a mouse, or a dog dressed as Santa Claus—framed to get a laugh. Framed embroidered patterns can become a Christmas tradition you can pass down to younger generations. Embroidered items also make great Christmas gifts.
