Real mistletoe is not something easily found in many states in the US. If we wanted to hang real mistletoe, we would have to purchase it from a "harvester" that gathered it and brought it to our state. To be honest, since it is in fact a parasite plant that kills it's host tree, I am grateful that it is not common to our area.
Growing up, my mother used a sprig of holly instead of mistletoe. When I was very young, I actually thought mistletoe was holly. I think the holly sprigs just gave everyone an opportunity to harass anyone who stood in a doorway. While it is a entertaining, you don't have to use real plants. You can make your own beaded mistletoe and enjoy the fun of the mistletoe tradition.

The beaded ornament is 5" x 6½" which is large enough to hang in the middle of a doorway as a pretty Christmas decoration. But, it is also small enough that you could hand it on the Christmas tree as an ornament if you prefer. The Under the Mistletoe Bubble Beads kit includes the bubble beads, monofilament, cabone ring, bell and of course, the instructions to make one bubble bead mistletoe.
