Cable Tie Mistletoe

Christmas may be over, but it's never too late to be kissed under the mistletoe! Create a mistletoe that lasts all year long from cable ties!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.



Step 2.


Create a teardrop shape from a 4″ green cable tie.


Step 3.


Pinch the sides to make a point to make it look like a leaf.


Step 4.


Make six leaves total and trim off the ends.


Step 5.


Glue together three leaves, and then in a separate group glue two together.


Step 6.


Cut 8 inches of the craft wire and use round nose pliers to create a hook on one end.


Step 7.


Hook the wire onto the group of three leaves. Twist the wire to secure.


Step 8.


Wrap green wash tape around the craft wire to create the stem of the mistletoe.


Step 9.


Cut (2) 2″ pieces of craft wire.


Step 10.


Form a hook on one end of the wire and thread on (1) mini pony bead.


Step 11.


Use pliers to lock it into the wire so it won’t fall off.


Step 12.


Create (4) of these and cover the wire with washi tape.

Step 13.


Tape (2) beaded wires together.



Step 14.


Cut a 4-inch piece of wire and create a hook on one end.


Step 15.


Hook the wire onto the remaining group of leaves.


Step 16.


Twist the wire together to secure and cover the twist with washi tape.


Step 17.


Tape the a pair of the beaded wires to the stem from the previous step.


Step 18.


Tape the 3-leaf stem and the 2-leaf steam together.



Step 19.


Twist the tape tightly as you make your way to the end of the stem. Leave an 1 1/2″ of the craft wire uncovered.


Step 20.


Cut a 3-inch piece of craft wire and make a hook on one end.


Step 21.


Hook the wire into the last leaf. Twist the wire to secure and cover with tape.


Step 22.


Tape the remaining beaded wire pair to the last leaf stem.


Step 23.


To complete one large stem, tape this stem near the bottom where the uncovered wire starts. Tightly twist the tape to keep the width consistent throughout the whole stem.


Step 24.


Make 4 large stems total.


Step 25.


Tape the bases of the stems together.


Step 26. 


Secure the stems with (2) cable ties, then trim off any excess.

Step 27.


Cut a 12″ piece of red mesh craft cording.


Step 28.


Loop the mesh cording and tie a knot.


Step 29.


Tie a bow around the base of the stems for hanging.
