As I travel down the rabbit hole that is needlepoint, I grow more acquainted with the designs one can purchase on ready-made canvases. One common type of needlepoint canvas is Christmas ornament designs. Since I want to make a geeky one as a gift and canvas painters avoid others’ IP, I had to make up my own. I’m not ready to show off that full design yet; I want to avoid spoiling the surprise. However, as an intermediate step I built a needlepoint ornament template, which I am happy to share.

The final size is 59 (W) x 69 (H) intersections. Approximate finished dimensions are:

  • 18-count canvas: 3.2″ x 3.8″
  • 16-count canvas: 3.7″ x 4.3″
  • 14-count canvas: 4.2″ x 4.9″
