Christmas Hairstyles: Holly Hairdo Tutorial

After seeing this adorable reindeer hairdo at Simple of That I thought it’d be fun to try some holiday hairstyles out on my 11 year old.  I searched at the store for products I could use to make my ideas happen and in the end, I kinda like the printable I created a little more.  But here are two versions of holly hair:
Holly Hairstyles for the Holidays- done 2 ways

There are two ways that you can do this hairdo.  You can use the template I made and print it out.  Or you can get the supplies from the dollar store, a craft store, etc.  I think they are both cute looks- just different from each other.
Here are the supplies I used:

Trace the holly leave pattern with pipe cleaner www.thirtyhandmadedays.comTo create the pipe cleaner version I printed out the holly template and used it to trace for the pipe cleaner.  I used one pipe cleaner for the leaf part and then one pipe cleaner attached to the bottom to wrap around the bun.

And there you have a fun holiday hairstyle:
