Christmas Card With Spirelli Ornaments

Christmas is just over a month away and I am behind on making my Christmas cards!  Here is a beautiful card that takes less time than you may think.  I find Spirelli, the technique of wrapping the thread around the scalloped circles, relaxing.  I love watching as the geometric forms take shape. It kind of reminds me of Spirograph.

When I make the ornaments, I don't count the notches. I like having a variety.  Just remember that the fewer notches you skip, the larger the center aperture.

If  you're new to Spirelli, here's a video explaining how to do it as well as instructions for completing this card.  Even if you're not new to Spirelli, you might find a useful tip for keeping your thread from unraveling. ;)
