    Felt Mistletoe Craft

    Felt Mistletoe Craft

    Mistletoe is a leathery-leaved parasitic plant that bears white berries in the winter. Kissing under the mistletoe is a popular tradition during the Christmas season. When I was a kid, my mom had a sprig of plastic mistletoe that hung in the doorway at the bottom of the stairs. I always wanted my own bunch of mistletoe to hang in my own house for my family. This year I pulled out my craft supplies and made my own kissing ball using green pipe cleaners, green felt, and white pompoms.

    Materials

    Instructions

    1. Cut elongated oval leaf shapes from the green felt.
    2. Bend a green pipe cleaner in half.
    3. Slightly bend the ends of the pipe cleaner.
    4. Sew a white pompom on both ends of the pipe cleaner.
    5. Sew pairs of felt leaves on the pipe cleaner.
    6. Repeat to form a bundle of bent pipe cleaners.
    7. Twist the pipe cleaners together.
    8. Cut another pipe cleaner in half.
    9. Use the piece of pipe cleaner to form a hanging loop.
    10. Display the felt mistletoe craft.
