String Art Ornaments

Hello Bloggers,

I made a few ornaments using the half finished string art that I shared last week.  I know it's a bit early for ornaments but I need to have them ready just in case I need it.







I used two circles for each ornament one for the  front and one for the back.  For these stitching I used the crochet thread size 20. It gave more dimension.  I like it better than the embroidery floss. I was trying to see which embellishments look better.  For the first one I used half back pearls and the second one I used clear rhino stones.  I like the pearls one better.
