~Kiss & Tell~
Rosy little kissing ball to hang for the Holidays
To make a kissing ball
you will need:
~extra large Styrofoam ball
~strips of fabric to create rosettes
~pine cones and/or artificial Christmas sprig
~LOTS of glue sticks
~to make the rosettes, cut long strips of fabric (the longer the strip, the larger the rosette),
and begin by making a knot. This will give you a good strong starting off spot and will also create a nice finished look to your rosette once completed. Twist fabric and roll around knot, adding small dots of hot glue to hold. Continue this way until you have run out of fabric. One rosette finished ... lots more to go!
~ Attach rosette to your Styrofoam ball, and begin another one :-)
~Keep doing this until the entire ball is covered with roses.
~Find a nice long piece of ribbon to hang your kissing ball and create a hanging loop.
~With hot glue, attach to top of ball.
~Embellish the top of kissing ball with pine cones and/or artificial Christmas sprig
~Hang in foyer & greet all who come into your home for the holidays with a warm, welcoming kiss ♥
With any left over strips of fabric after making the kissing ball , you can use them up by creating some angel wings.
To create the angel wings
you will need:
~cardboard to make a wing template
~strips of fabric
~hot glue gun & glue sticks
~cut out angel template from cardboard
~ cover cardboard wings with glue
~ wrap with strips of fabric to cover ...overlap to create a feathered look
~ wrap wings with twine & using hot glue, attach
~cut out sentimental Angel phrase to add to your wings and glue in place
