Felt and Fall go together like cookies and milk and it has been a whole ton of fun creating different projects in felt for you to make at home. Today we are sharing the pattern and tutorial for this cute felt holly brooch in shades of rich teal and deep greens vibrant reds and bright orange. Our leaf template can be downloaded below. Simply print onto regular printer paper and cut out the template. Place this onto your felt and trim to size. Add a simple running stitch to the leaves in a contrasting color then you can get to work on the felt ball berries. Making felt balls using roving felt is a fun way to introduce yourself to the craft. The balls needn’t be perfect so you can play and practice without any pressure! Take a look at our tutorial on this page to find out how to create them.

Once all the pieces are cut, and the felted balls are made, you can set about assembling the brooch using a low temperature glue gun. Pinch and glue the stems of the felt leaves to create depth to your piece and secure the felt balls to the flat red berries one by one. Group the leaves around the berries and then attached the brooch pin to the back with glue.
