Mistletoe Braille Art Design

Create a mistletoe braille art design during this holiday season.

A bunch of mistletoe leaves and berries hanging from a tree.

Braille art is a fun way to promote braille literacy, create accessible greeting cards, and motivate students who are blind or visually impaired.

See below for instructions to create a mistletoe braille art design.
