Ou La La!

Meet Me Under The Mistletoe...

I really wanted a mistletoe ball for our house this Christmas but it was almost impossible to find. When I found it at Target they wanted $12.99 and it wasn't even anything special!

So I got crafty of course!

For only $4 at Hobby Lobby I found these bunches of mistletoe.

I then went to the $1 store and got this styrofoam ornament that was perfect for my base. I love that it's glittery and gold underneath all the leaves, I didn't like the string it was on so I swapped it out with my own.

And for $5 I made a better mistletoe ball than Target had!


  1. I love that! I was in Hallmark tonight and they had some for $10 - I think I'll head to Hobby Lobby to make one for $5!

  2. Looks great! I have the Target one and I swear yours looks EXACTLY like it!

    How did you hang it from the ceiling? I'm trying to figure out how to hang mine and I gave up : )

  3. oh i love it..i never thought about hanging a mistletoe in my house!! how cute!!

  4. Thanks ladies :)
    The $1 store is my new found love that I probably take advantage of way too often!

    Lisa - I actually just used a thumbtack, and since my tack wasn't flat I used the extra mistletoe you see at the top to hide it.

  5. Love it! I just thinking about how I haven't seem them at Home Depot this year. Great job!

  6. Very Cute and Thrifty. I am Mistletoe less this year too, I may have to whip up my own. Thanks for the inspiration!
