I love working with felt, especially around Christmas. Felt is so easy to work with and comes in such brilliant colours. It is the perfect material for making these simple felt holly pins. I whipped up three of these pins in just a couple of hours. It doesn’t take a lot of skill to create these festive corsages.

Position the leaves in any way that you like. Now attach the circles, or the holly berries. Take a moment to try out different positions for the berries. Find an arrangement that you like and start sewing on one berry at a time. To attach, sew a running stitch around the smaller berry. Sew on all three berries. These stitches will hold the entire pin together.
This pin can be fastened to a jacket, a hat, a sweater or a hair band. There are so many ways to wear the pin. I made 2 smaller pins for my daughters. They will be perfect accessories for all of our festive outings over the holidays. Where will you pin yours?
