This holly themed quick make is perfect for wearing over the Christmas season, I’ve got a bit carried away making these and have quite a few spare ones which will be perfect for popping into peoples gifts as an extra little present.
This is a great scrap busting project – all you need is some red, brown (or any other colour you prefer for the band) and green wool.
