A week ago, I made myself a holly cluster because I decided I needed something Christmas-y in the house as we don't have any decorations. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it though because we don't have the space to put up our tree (my boyfriend has a 6ft tree but his ex-wife took all the decorations when she left).
I finally decided that I should make myself a barrette out of the holly. I posted a photo of it to FB and my sister asked if I would make one for her. Then my aunt asked if I could make her a brooch pin with holly and I figured my mom would like one. I also knew that if I made one for my aunt that her two daughters would want ones of their own.

The leaves were made using this pattern that I found via Pinterest. I made the pattern for the berries myself.
The barrettes are hair bow clips like you can find in Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and other craft stores. The brooches were made with brooch pin backs that I bought at Walmart a few years ago but I haven't found any of them this year.

These holly leaves and berries are great. Thankyou for the link to the pattern. I will have to make some as toppers for a knitted Christmas pudding that I want to make.

Thanks and you're welcome Cheesy
I think I've found something that will be a hit at a street fair I'm hoping to sell at in September.
