Hello there! It’s December, the last month of the year. And I know, to all of you who celebrate Christmas, this is the month that you’ve been waiting for every year. I don’t celebrate Christmas, so this is one of a very long holiday in a year where my family enjoying sit back and relax for almost 2 weeks in a row 😀
I like Christmas ornaments, they all look so festive. And here, I already finished making a free tutorial as a present for you who celebrate Christmas, a Pine Tree Ornament 😀
But basically, it’s a very versatile pattern. It’s not only used as a Christmas ornament but also can be used as non-thematic moments such as a garland, a finishing touch for your present, bookmark, and etc. Just let your imagination be free and think what is it for 🙂 So.. Enjoy the pattern!
