This year I made my own Holly Berries as I am not going to use any plastic holly leaves and fake-looking berries to ruin my Christmas decorations. I am using felt to make the leaves and combining it with artificial, but real-looking berries I found in a florist shop.
This particular holly berry is for a wreath that I am giving away to my friend. It is not only limited to wreaths, but you can also make these berries to decorate your Christmas Tree, Stocking, on the wall or just anywhere you like.
Stocking sounds like a good idea to me as I am going to make them for my kids, so I might decorate them with these holly berries as well… Will show you the stockings later once they are done. Let’s come back on how to make this Felt Holly Berries.
DIY Felt Holly Berries
1. Green and White felt
2. Artificial red berries
3. Fabric Glue
4. Sewing thread and needle
5. Some ribbons
optional (only if you want to glitter the leaves)
7. Green glitter powder
8. Sharp end toothpick
Attach the green felt to the white felt. Reserve at least 10mm of space in between them. Wait 5-10 minutes until it is tacky and the joint won’t shift.
Cut them out from the white felt with 5mm border.
Pinch one of the ends and sew it with thread and needle.
Do the same to other leaves.
Voila!!! Holly Berries!!!
