Fabulously Festive: "Kiss Me" Hanging Mistletoe Decoration


I've been having a lot of fun making holiday crafts this year and thought I'd share a fun & super easy project I created with goodies I found at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores®.  They asked me to create a fabulously festive project to Celebrate the Season, so I came up with this Easy Hanging Mistletoe Decoration.  It's a great reminder to show love ones some affection this time of year.


It just takes some festive faux mistletoe berries:


and a little encouragement to get folks in the mood...


Now here's the how-to:


Materials:
- Holiday floral stem
- Seasonal ribbons
- Small Wooden plaque
- Acrylic Paint & paintbrushes
- Cardstock & cutting machine (or exact-o knife)
- Mod Podge
- Duck Tape/hot glue

* I got all my goodies at my local Jo-Ann Store.  

Start by cutting apart the single stem to make a more condensed bunch of mistletoe.  Mine had some strong wire inside so I borrowed these pliers from my husband to snip them up:


Next, I cut out the words Kiss Me in a scroll-y font using my Cricut.  If you don't have a cutting machine, just use an exact-o knife or stencil.


Paint the wooden plaque with some acrylic paint.  I did two coats with a soft gold to match my foyer's other holiday decor.  The plaque I got also had a handy wire already attached, which makes hanging easier. When the paint is dry, add a thin layer of Mod Podge:


Press on the letters and then cover with another two coats of Mod Podge:


When surface is all dry, flip over and tape or hot glue the ends of the mistletoe on the center of the back of the plaque:


Tie on some seasonal ribbon - I mixed some 1/8 inch wide satins with a candy cane striped ric rac.  If your plaque does have a hanger, you could always tape/glue a loop of ribbon onto the back instead:


Then hang the mistletoe over a doorway and let the seasonal smooching begin!
