Have you seen all of the different kinds of mistletoe we’ve made over the years? In addition to crafting mistletoe to hang for the holidays, we have also used it in various winter wreaths, as table decor, and as ornaments. This year, Krista has designed some felt mistletoe branches that would look beautiful in a simple vase on your mantel or table for the holiday season.
Just check out our supplies list below to see what you need. Then download our template and step-by-step tutorial at the bottom of the post!
From head to mistletoe
Our felt mistletoe branches are a beginner-friendly craft project that is easy to cut with or without a cutting machine. Once you’ve cut your pieces, our tutorial will show you how to assemble the branches using floral wire, glue, and floral tape. You will also see how we used tiny felt balls to create the berries that you will attach to your branches.
We can’t wait to see how you decorate your home with these felt mistletoe branches! Or, rather than the full branch, another fun idea is to make small sprigs to use as gift toppers or ornaments. Whatever you do with this DIY craft, share your photos with us on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

Lia Eucalyptus felt out of stock . What other color is ok to use?
Thank you Patricia
I would use Moss in its place. It is a little darker but would be just as pretty. 🙂
Lia When will the Eucalyptus felt be back in stock,also the curry marker?
I do want to wake this project soon
Thank You Patricia
We should have things back in stock next week. 🙂
Lia Thank you for answering my question. I am on the East coast.
However, they do remind me of one of your previous FELT tree projects.
Thank you Patricia
They do coordinate with that tree!
Love the changes to your photo tutorials. And this is a lovely little project.
Thank you! I’m happy to hear you like the new format.
Lia what are the green trees used in this project??
thank you Patricia Keane
We bought them from New Seasons three years ago. Not sure where you are located, but it’s a grocery store here on the west coast.
