I love having greenery in my house in the winter and a cute little sprig of mistletoe with its contrasting white berries and a red ribbon hung above the door is a breath of fresh air to me, and a great way to get a few more of those heart felt kissaroos. Who couldn’t use a little more loven in your home?
So how did this plant’s association with Christmas and kissing come to be? It is an interesting story, and I will let you read about it here if you are interested.
As you know, I have a thing for upcycled felted wool sweaters, and my favorite color of sweaters is GREEN. Whenever I go to the second hand store and find a sweater that is a good shade of green, I buy it and consider my day a success. Well, I have found another fun project to use my sweaters.
I am going to guide you through a quick and fun upcycled sweater mistletoe tutorial.
This is all you will need:
- Green felted wool sweaters, or regular green felt can work too.
- Green floral wire
- Green floral tape
- Fake white floral berries, or you could use white felted wool balls, or anything that is white that would look like a berry.
- Red ribbon
- Sewing machine
- PDF pattern (download here)
Look how cute it looks hung above the doorway.
So, get out your green wool scraps and whip up a few sprigs for your home, or share some kissing attracting love with your friends and family. They do make a great gift and a gift wrapping embellishment. Have fun creating!
