A kissing ball is a fun holiday decoration that can add to your Christmas decor. Kissing balls can be made to coordinate with any of other decorations and can be made in fresh greens or artificial. I will show you how to make an artificial kissing ball you can display throughout the holiday season.

I am sharing all of the directions for how to make this kissing ball today, but the really exciting part of this craft project is that I will be leading a Facebook LIVE Group Project on October 13th. You can order your supplies from the list below and then tune into Hometalk on Facebook on Friday, October 13th at 1:00 PM Eastern Time and follow along step by step as we make this project! I will be LIVE so I can answer any questions as we make this together!
Take your ribbon and wrap it around the ball, securing the ribbon with a spot of hot glue on the bottom of the ball. Wrap the ribbon around to the top and tie it in a secure knot. Take a second, longer piece of ribbon, the length you will want to hang your kissing ball. Feed the longer ribbon under the knot and tie it around the knot.
Time to begin using the hot glue to attach the pinecones to the Styrofoam balls. Hold them in place until the glue has dried and the pinecones are secure.
Continue to move around your ball gluing the pinecones as close together as you they can easily fit together.
These are the spaces you will have between the pinecones. Do not be concerned if some of the spots appear large, you won’t see them at all as you complete your kissing ball.
Take your green pine sprays and cut each of the tips off of the stem. Cut each of these tips into 3 or 4 shorter tips.
