Gather the following:
Aileen's Tacky Glue
Felt in two greens
Tiny Red Poms
Embroidery Floss in a lighter green than your felt
Velvet Ribbon or Ribbon of your choice
Start by cutting some shapes. The round shape in the darker felt will be your base. I decided the darker felt would be the main leaves and then small leaves in the lighter felt. Cut five big in the darker color and five small in the lighter color. I free handed the shape, but if you need a bit of a guide, there's a great one here.
Start at the bottom of your fascinator by layering two of the bigger dark leaves side by side.
I am not the greatest stitcher. But using your embroidery thread, add a few little straight stitches on the holly leaves. It just adds some interest and a bit of crafty whimsy. You've already glued the leaves down, so your stitches can be purely decorative.
Time for the next level of cute! Tuck in those sweet smaller leaves in the lighter color where you think they look best. Glue away with some more Aileen's.
Time to add the bow! Tie and cut the ends at an angle. Add with some more Aileen's.
Aileen's to the rescue! Slide the tip of the glue under the back cover and squeeeeze. That will get some glue in there and you can follow up with your clip. That way, even if the metal doesn't stick to the felt, you'll at least surround it with secured felt.
The only thing left is to ROCK it.
Merry Christmas! I'll do a New Years one this week with a bit more GLITZ! Stay tuned....
