I used all DMC but did get the DMC satin for the baubles which is a PITA to stitch with but looks great. It would have been easier if I'd needed 2 strands because I use the secured needle method of stitching so less slippage but for coverage, three strands were needed.
I used a Just Buttons cardinal instead of the Mill Hill bird (cheaper and nicer) but as it was slightly bigger I used it on the top garland instead of the round wreath, which now has the red star. The variegated threads worked well on this. The green is DMC 92 and the red 115 (of course!).
