Oak Branch Cross-Stitch Pin

More acorn love this week--and another free cross-stitch chart! This Oak Branch design uses just three colors of DMC embroidery floss--898 Very Dark Coffee Brown, 422 Light Hazelnut Brown, and 3820 Dark Straw. It's simple to stitch, but I think the finished design has a detailed look. You can follow the chart below or click here to download a printable chart and color key.

I really like this bar pin setting from the Etsy shop Kailea. If you stitch the design on 18-count Aida, it will fit perfectly. You can use another setting if you like, or stitch the design on 14- or 11-count Aida and make your finished embroidery into an ornament.

  1. Is this the silver pin or the gold one? I want to make this but want to be sure to get the right size pin,

    1. It's the silver one. It's listed as 142ST in the Kailea Etsy shop.

  2. That is adorable!! Would be a perfect barrette, too! :) Thank you for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty
