Felt Mistletoe Hairclip Tutorial

Kisses under the mistletoe – a cute holiday tradition! I don’t need an excuse to kiss my (not-so) baby girl, but thought a little bit of mistletoe would add some fun to her holiday outfits. Here’s the felt mistletoe hairclip I came up with:

How to sew a Felt Mistletoe Hairclip Tutorial, for the little girl who just needs to be kissed (or make it as a Christmas ornament)

And modelled by my sweet, little girl:

Who can resist kissing those chubby cheeks?

Here’s the how I made it:

Materials

image

Green and Red felt
Small white beads (mine were from a bracelet)
Small hair clip Thread
Needle
Scissors

Procedure

Cut the following shapes from the red and green felt

image

Roll the green rectangle into a cylinder along the long side and pin in place:

image

Hand-stitch the cylinder closed:

image

Stitch three leaves into a group, then stitch onto the bottom of the cylinder. Then stitch the remaining 5 leaves into a group and sew higher up onto the cylinder:

image

Sew a couple of groups of 3-4 beads onto the stalk:

 image

Make a small bow with the red felt (I did mine a cheat’s way as I’m not good at tying neat bows – form the long strip of felt into two loops and sew together, then sew the smaller strip around the middle of the loops):

image

Sew the bow to the top of the mistletoe:

If you wanted a Christmas decoration, you could sew on a loop or just use it like this. If you want to make it into a hairclip, read on…

Sew one of the clip cover pieces onto the back of the mistletoe.

image

Cut a small slit into the other clip cover piece and insert the clip:

image

Sew the two clip cover pieces together – I used a blanket stitch to create a neat edge finish:

image

There you have your mistletoe clip.

Find a cute little person, put the clip in their hair and smother them with kisses!
