Make a white mistletoe with friends
Last year I bought a couple of flower making books and I really want to try my hand at some. This mistletoe uses some of the same techniques as you typically find with crepe paper flowers and cardstock greenery.
I had a Christmas craft day with some friends and this was the craft I shared with them.
We made berries out of wooden beads glued to bent wire. We painted them with leftover white ceiling paint and stuck them into some Styrofoam to dry.
I had pre-cut 4 sets of leaves for each of my friends. One set consists of one double leaf and two singles. I also added a few extra single leaves so the clusters had some variance.
We used a bone folder to make a slightly curved score line down the middle. Then shaped each leaf too, by curling it slightly to the back.
We made little clusters by putting each leaf branch together with berries as you see below. Once we had made all 4 clusters we tied those together using a darker green floral tape.
Here are our four finished Mistletoes. Ready for hanging. And kissing.
I hung mine from a small hook in the doorway between our living room and kitchen. It is also the same technique used in this acorn wreath I made this fall.

Some SVG files in this download have score lines. Here is a tutorial for how to handle score lines in SVGs.
If you have any suggestions for SVG projects you would like me to make in the future, please let me know in the comments.
