DIY Felt Mistletoe
You will need some green felt, a cotton ball (or small white pom poms), a few twigs, acrylic paint, string and a hot glue gun.
Pull off a piece of cotton and roll it between your palms. I was able to make the nine small cotton balls for this project from a single cotton ball and I still had cotton left over if that gives you any idea about the amount of cotton to use for each small ball.
Hot glue your felt leaves to your twig taking cues from the natural shape of your twigs. Then hot glue the small cotton balls in sets of three. Use your fingers to roll the ends of the felt to give your leaves a more natural look.
Hot glue your twigs together to hold them in place then tie them together with your string. I added some red and white bakers twine to hang my felt mistletoe, but if you don’t have any you could easily take a red marker to your white string.
I’ve done it before, just make sure to let your string dry completely before you start to handle it or you’ll get red ink everywhere!
