make your own mistletoe decoration

Supplies

one-half bushel of 6-inch sprigs of boxwood

water

regular 7-Up

bleach

medium potato

awl or long nail

coat hanger

needle-nose pliers

2 yards of 7/8-inch red ribbon

glue

wire florist pins

sprig of mistletoe

Directions

Submerge boxwood overnight in 1 quart water, 1 quart regular 7-Up and 2 tablespoons bleach.

With the awl, make a hole through the center of the potato. Straighten the coat hanger. Push one end through the potato and, with the pliers, make a hook in the end. Pull the hanger back through the potato so the hook embeds itself in the end of the potato. Make a hook in the other end.

Cover the coat hanger: Cut two pieces of ribbon the length of the wire, then put a thin line of glue along the ribbon edges and press them together on both sides of the wire.

Trim boxwood into 6-inch pieces. Strip leaves from stem end. Cut stems on diagonal to push in the potato easier.

Make the first row of holes about 1/2 inch apart, from top to bottom, down one side of the potato, then the other side. Finish studding the potato with boxwood.

Don't trim too much. You want it shaggy so it looks more natural.

Attach a bow, mistletoe and ribbon streamers to the bottom with florist pins. Add a bow to the top of the potato and the top hook. Hang the ball from a doorway.
