DIY Project: Felt Mistletoe

I can’t take credit for today’s Ten Days of Craftsmas (I only shot the picture!). Shauna of  Shauna Younge Dessert Tables was the mastermind behind this cute and crafty twist on the holiday staple. It’s quite quick and easy to make, so how adorable would it to have a bunch of these around your house during your annual holiday party? Nice work, Shauna!


  • felt
  • chenille stems
  • scissors
  • glue gun and glue
  • thin rubber band
  • 2″ wide ribbon
  • ¼” or ½” wide ribbon
  • this mistletoe template


Cut out branches according to the provided template. For a fuller look, cut additional copies of the smaller and medium sized branches.

Back each branch with a color coordinated chenille stem, securing the stem in place with hot glue. This will stiffen the branches and allow them to be hand-shaped for a more natural, wild look. Secure the longest branch to a length of 2″ wide ribbon with a rubber band.

Gradually add more branches by sliding each one under the rubber band. Position and hand-shape each branch to your liking, then cover the rubber band with the thinner width ribbon and tie in a bow to finish the look.

  3. My daughter learned about mistletoe in school yesterday and wanted some to hang in our kitchen. I told her real mistletoe is poisonous but we can make some. This looks perfect. Thanks!
