You will need…

● Half a square of dark green felt -

To make

Cutting out
Cut two big holly leaves and two smaller holly leaves from green felt (image 1 and holly hair clip pattern). 

Cut 4 small circles from red felt, for the berries.

Inserting the hairclip
In one of the large holly leaves cut a small slit approximately 2cm away from the bottom (see image 2). Snap open the hair clip and insert the back through the slit (image 3).

Take the other large felt holly leaf and place this on top of the other big holly leaf so that the top of the hair clip is sandwiched in between the leaves.

Take the two smaller felt leaves, and stitch the edges the spine and veins (image 5).

Sewing the berries

Take your brooch pin and insert a small square of felt between the pin and the back. Stitch this securely into place on the back of the brooch/hairclip (image 7).
