Make It Mini: A Merry Mistletoe Headband
Last week in our Make It Mini video series, we showed you how to make a festive stocking gift topper for all your presents. This week, Make It Mini really gets into the *kiss*-mas spirit with a mini mistletoe headband. All you need to make this teeny headband are beads, floral wire, round nose pliers, fabric leaves, a glue gun, a bow and a simple headband. Once you’ve gathered your mini materials, it’s time to have some fun with this super simple, crazy cute and smooch-inspiring mistletoe headband!
Ready to make one on your own? Scroll on for all the tiny DIY deets.
Begin by adding beads to your floral wire and curling the ends with the pliers to create little loops.
Next, bend the wire in a u-shape and hot glue your fabric leaves on. Once dried, repeat the same process and glue the two wires together.
Now just add your adorbs red bow to finish your gift topper, and you have the sweetest mini mistletoe we have *ever* seen!
Hang in doorways or on mantels to add a super cute and festive decor element at home, or glue another piece of floral wire to a headband and then add the mini mistletoe. Now you have a mini reason to share a kiss. You could even take it a step further and put it on your pup for a serious photo win!
Not quite sure how we did that? Watch the vid below for more detailed instructions on how to DIY this tiny mistletoe headband.
