be some kind of mad mistletoe
shortage in these parts, which is weird because mistletoe is native
to NC and it grows everywhere along the coast, but regardless, I
have not been able to find a single sprig of it around here this
year. And being a DIY kinda gal, I decided that surely I should be
able to make some. Most of the time the stuff found in stores more
closely resembles a sprig of eucalipitis with some glued-on white
plastic berries. This is my result.
used the Cricut
"Joys of the Season" cartridge and cut out five leaf boarde r(
)shapes at 1.5 inches in width, using two different shades of plain
green cardstock. I then used a standard hole punch to punch out the
round white berries. After gluing the berries to the leafy paper
stems with a glue stick, I gathered the stems at one end and tied
them with some silver glitter ribbon that I had left over from my
wreath. And tada! Instant Mistletoe!
