This is a fun little holiday project I've taken on two years now. I keep coming back to it because it is so pretty, and simple, and not time-consuming. You can't beat that combo!
See the project how-to's here.
Another option, which is similar, is to cut out felt leaves and then sew them together. You can string the jingle bells as outlined in the directions, and then strap them on to the sewn leaves. This variation is equally as easy.
While they show lovely shades of sage & red, I think kraft brown paper is equally pretty. You can find large rolls at Xpedx and smaller rolls at Big Lots for $1 each. IKEA also sometimes stocks kraft brown paper and solid reds too.
