I love holly and thought it would look great on my tree. Here's a quick and easy way of making your own holly!
Materials: - white felt (or the color of your choice) - ribbon/ ric rac - glitter pom poms - glue gun- scissors - holly pattern
Step 1 - Trace your holly pattern on to your felt. You can easily find a holly pattern on-line. I like create a template on cardstock, so I can use in the future. My holly leaves measure between 2" to 3" long.
Step 2 - Cut out all your holly leaves.
Step 3 - Cut out ribbon pieces that are as long as each holly leaf. I chose ribbon with bits of green and red ric rac for mine.
Step 4 - For this part, I sewed the ribbon to my holly leaves, but if you don't have a sewing machine you can either stitch it on or use a glue gun.
Step 5 - Assemble your holly, overlay each of the 3 leaves glue-gunning as you go. Glue on the glitter pom poms and you've created . . .
the prettiest holly embellishments ever! Add a string to the back of the middle leaf and you have an ornament. You can also attach them to twine and make a super cute garland! Sue
