Ornaments, Signs & Eyeglass Cases

Most small pieces can be finished into ornaments, signs, or an eyeglass case. Whether you're interested in an ornament for your Christmas tree or as a year-round decoration, we offer one-sided or two-sided finishes, overstuffed, and most common, flat back with a slight puff. Small rectangular pieces make great eyeglass cases or hanging signs!

What Are My Options For Ornaments, Signs, & Eyeglass Case Finishing?

Our goal is always to make you exactly what you are looking for, whether that is clean & simple or embellished & complex.

  • One-Sided Ornament/Sign

    Our most popular ornament finish. This style is flat on the back with a small puff to the front. Your cording/loop will made custom from DMC.

  • Two-Sided Ornament/Sign

    This style is very popular for signs like open/closed, vacancy/no vacancy, etc. Each side has a small puff, just like the one-sided finish! Your cording/loop will be made custom from DMC.

  • Looped Corners Sign

    Extremely similar to a one-sided ornament finish. This style is flat on the back with a small puff to the front. Your cording will not make a full loop to hang, instead, two smaller loops are formed on the corners so that a ribbon or bow can be run through to hang.

  • Eyeglass Cases

    Eyeglass cases can be finished with one or two side of needlepoint. One-sided cases have a fabric back and lining while two-sided cases just have a fabric lining. Cording, closures, and tassels are an optional embellishment.

Estimated Lead Times

Ornaments, signs, & eyeglass cases are entirely hand-sewn, making them one of the longest lead times in needlepoint finishing. They are typically completed in 5-6 months.
