curated color guide for Piper Piping ornaments



 Photos courtesy of Benzie Design

All three of the Pipers Piping up at the top ^ there were made using this ^ Benzie wool-blend felt in my pre-chosen palette #4, which covers two of my Twelve Days ornaments: Colly Bird and Piper Piping. Thanks again for organizing that bundle listing, Renae!

Benzie Felt Bundle #4 (Colly Bird/Piper Piping): 
Black
Graphite
Julep
Moss
Coral
Mustard
Peacock
Cyan
Copper
Orange

You can purchase the felt bundle with or without the matching flosses, which is a nice option. You'll need matching floss anyway to sew your ornaments together, so having the pre-matched flosses comes in handy!
NOTE: You will still need to purchase floss for the contrast decorative embroidery!

  2. These ornaments are so beautiful! Have you ever thought of doing a Nativity ornament set in the same style?

    1. Hi, Amie, that's not in my immediate future because my to do list is miles long. There are so many cute nativity DIY patterns out there already! Thanks for the suggestion!
