Christmas Kissing Ball





Every Friday until Christmas we are hopping, inspiring and giving away prizes.  This hop is all about decorations and the line up is a good one!!  Here it is:
Make sure you stop by each blog, leave some love and visit the Ribbon Resource blog to enter to win!!

My decoration is a Kissing Ball.  This is one of my favorite decorations for the holidays!!  This one is meant for inside decorating.



You will need:
a styrofoam ball
wood dowl
floral pins
greenery and berry picks

May Arts ribbon used (you can find all of these at The Ribbon Resource):

I used a wood dowl to create a hole threw the middle of the styrofoam ball.



I then used the dowl to push the 2 inch sheer ribbon through the ball (doubled and folded in half).  I tied knots at both ends to keep the ribbon from coming out.

Next I covered the enitre ball with my greenery and berry picks.


I created a loop with the striped ribbon and attached with a floral pin then stretched and twisted the ribbon in between loops that I attached randomly all over the ball.


Then I cut pieces of the canvas to create single loops to attach all over the ball.


I folded pieces of the mini bow in half, twisted around the floral pin, created spirals on both pieces by wrapping around the handle of a small paint brush and attached all over the ball.


I used the metallic gold string to add a tassle on the bottom.


Thanks for hopping with us today!!  

Until next time...wrap yourself in ribbon!!
