    Twist together 5 1/2-inch red and white pipe cleaners (also called chenille stems).

  2. Step 2

    Make sure the stripes of the combined red-and-white stem are neatly spaced.

  3. Step 3

    Curl the top into a hook. Bend a 3-inch length of green pipe cleaner at 1/2-inch intervals to shape a holly leaf. Hot-glue the leaf ini place, then hot-glue on a cluster of glass beads for berries, or tie on a ribbon threaded with a small ornament.
