DIY Felt Mistletoe tutorial : Quick and Easy Christmas crafts

Kisses under the mistletoe – it’s a holiday tradition, but what if you can’t find any mistletoe? Make your own DIY felt mistletoe, of course!

I don’t need an excuse to kiss my (not-so) baby girl, but a mistletoe hairclip adds a bit of fun to her holiday outfits. Whether you make a hairclip or ornament, here’s how to sew felt mistletoe.

– Printable template – Green Felt – White seed beads – Red ribbon – Reynolds Freezer Paper


Cut out one leaf bunch and three individual leaves from green felt.


The easiest way is to trace the pattern pieces onto Reynolds Freezer Paper, iron onto the felt and then cut out. The freezer paper peels off easily and can be re-used.

Pinch together one of the leaves of the leaf bunch pattern piece.

Starting from the inside of the leaf (to hide the knot).

Stitch along the stem to create a cylinder, pinching as you go.
