Stitching Supplies: Christmas Stars is a versatile design, and can easily be customized! To stitch a Holly Wreath Sampler version, stitch each star with a different thread from the Holly Wreath box. Our model was stitched on 28 count Stormy Grey Jobelan (also found in the Holly Wreath box).
Finishing Supplies: Christmas Stars would look fabulous finished in a simple frame or as a no-sew cube. I finished our model as a stuffed pillow, using two of the pieces of Winter Wonderland fabric from the box to create a striped back, and a piece of the linen banding to create a little tag on the side. I am (admittedly) not the world's best sewer, but it was fun to have another chance to pull out my mom's Kenmore and sew a few straight lines! If you don't want to mess around with quilting fabric, you could always use a second piece of your stitching fabric to back the pillow.
