Go granny chic with the 19 faux cross-stitch projects for your home decor, clothing, and even tattoos!

19 Faux Cross-Stitch Projects - these are so fun!
I think we have all come to realize that I have a new obsession with all things cross-stitch!

Or rather, all things nontraditional and/or faux cross-stitch!

I even stumbled across a SUPER cute old rolling pin with faux cross-stitch while thrifting over the weekend.

I didn’t buy it.

But I was so tempted!

In honor of my new obsession, I have rounded up 19 awesome, nontraditional faux cross-stitch projects.

Eat your heart out!

What a fantastic collection! Gotta love crosstitch. Thank you for including my rocking chair! Just a note though, mine isn't faux, but actually crosstitched into the caning. ;)

I guess it should read as "nontraditional" cross-stitch. I love your project, Larissa!! It is just gorgeous!
