Presenting Mill Hill's Annual Santa Ornament Collection

Wow... what a charming collection of Paper Santas we offer! Every year, Mill Hill releases a trio of Santa Claus designs -- each year following a theme of some sort. Stitched on 14ct Perforated Paper with DMC flosses and garnished with Mill Hill glass seed beads... each collection has it's own flavor! All the various Santas finish approx 4 inches tall -- you can stitch them on fabric if you like, but part of their charm is that paper background. Stitch them, back them with a bit of sticky felt or fabric, and cut them out to shape.

They weigh nothing, so they don't bring down the branches of your tree. Lovely little bits of your needlework to garnish your Christmas Tree! Each kit has everything you need to make its Santa. Some favorites not to miss: The Musical Santas, The Tropical Santas, The Rocky Mountain and the Seafaring Set... we're over 20 different sets now... so this is quite the collection!
