Here are three very simple and quick snowflake proposals.
To embroider these flakes, I used an assortment of metallic threads n°4 from ” Au Ver à Soie”, a red DMC cotton, and 2,6 mm beads in green and red.
The 3 flakes are embroidered in the same way.
The branches are stitched with 2 strands of thread in fly stitch. (I used 2 different colors of thread).
The red “drops” are made of DMC cotton. Embroider a double lazy daisy stitch with 3 strands of thread and then insert the beads in the central part.
To finish, I added the final touch by decorating the snowflakes with various beads and a Swarowski crystal in the center.
