Christmas Tree Decorative Window Hanging with Freestanding Embroidery
For this very easy yet eyecatching window decoration we used the Battenberg lace designs of the Reindeer, Christmas Tree Ornament, and Reindeer Ornament.
Wire frame with fairy lights and lace ornaments.

You will need :
  • embroidery cotton and polyester threads (follow the freestanding Battenberg lace instructions),
  • alluminum craft wire, 15 gauge, of any color,
  • wire cutters,
  • battery operated "Fairy Lights",
  • a piece of cardboard,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • a pencil or marker.
Embroidery:
Following the instructions, make stitch-outs of the Reindeer, Christmas Tree Ornament, and Reindeer Ornament. For the frame we made, we used 2 stitch-outs of the tree and one each of the deer.

Let them air dry. Press if needed.

Meanwhile prepare the frame.
Template:
On a piece of cardboard, draw a rectangle :
Do not cut it out. You will use the outline to shape the wire tree.
Template for the frame.

Following the outline of the rectangle, shape the wire to make a double frame. Cut the wire. Fold the ends into a loop. The wire we used was soft enough to work without any tools. If you are using a harder wire, you might need pliers.

Wrap the string of "fairy lights" around the wire frame.
