An effortless way to plan your holiday décor is to select a color palette. For a polished look, a sparkling gold and white palette is timeless and can be accented by simple projects.
This Golden Accents pattern collection adds instant glamour and looks elegant when combined to decorate for the holidays. Pick out a few decorative stitches on your machine and thread it up with Coats & Clark Metallic Embroidery thread

For these projects look for home décor fabrics that have enough weight to support the decorative stitching and trims. Some examples would be a brocade or jacquard weave. Fabrics with woven with a metallic element would also compliment these projects. Other trims such as a lamé ribbon can be beautifully combined with the metallic threads.

Decorative stitches combine with textured home décor fabric in the Golden Accents Pillow pattern. A little tasseled bling in each corner is sure to make this lumbar cushion extra luxe for the holidays! It’s easy to create these fluffy tassels four at a time with a Red Heart Pom and tassel Maker.The stitching and ribbon accent are sewn on a strip of fabric which is then joined to the center and side panels. This way, you can experiment with your stitching and the trim on a strip of fabric and design it exactly the way you wish before inserting it in the pillow front. This pillow is pretty for holiday décor but can be used year-round to add glitz to any room.

Use this elegant color palette to create a holiday stocking that’s fit for a queen, a little princess, or anyone who loves a bit of sparkle! Simply pair jacquard home décor fabric with a metallic trim and decorative stitching using Coats & Clark Metallic thread. The Golden Accents Christmas Stocking makes a thoughtful heirloom gift for special friends and family.
PRO TIP: If you are making these projects as a group, perfect the combination of stitch patterns and ribbon trim, then use them for both the Golden Accents pillow and stocking.

The Golden Accents Fabric Basket is also a fun beginner project to try out all those decorative stitches in your machine. Release your creativity as you embellish the sides and accent them with metallic bows. Then, fill it with beautifully wrapped gourmet chocolates for a festive gift or with sparkling ornaments for a table accent. Are you inspired and ready to sew with a beautiful gold Christmas theme? Celebrate the holiday season with this Cheers Sequin Pillow and bring out the bubbly in this glam felt wine carrier! You can also co-ordinate touches of gold with traditional Christmas colors on your holiday dining table. This Bow Tie Quilted Placemats pattern adds sparkle with metallic thread for a festive finishing touch.
