Jessica Greene of Bull City Craft returns today with a final holiday craft. She's also shared how to make cute yarn snowman ornaments and gingerbread birdhouses.

Here's how to make mistletoe or holly garland with just a handful of materials. 

Pipe Cleaner Mistletoe or Holly Garland

Materials:
green pipe cleaners (chenille stems)
white or red pom poms
tacky glue

1. Bend and twist the end of a pipe cleaner to make a loop. Repeat with 10-20 pipe cleaners. Loops can vary in size. These loops will be the leaves of the mistletoe.
2. Attach two pipe cleaners together by twisting the straight ends together. Continue adding pipe cleaners by twisting and wrapping the pipe cleaners around each other. Attach them at different spots so that you have branches of different lengths.
3. Glue pom poms on for mistletoe or holly berries.
4. Hang up mistletoe with a pretty ribbon and give your little sweetie a kiss!
