This is not the first time that I make a Kissing Ball for the Holidays. However, things turned out for the worst this year. Smile
Since I do a lot of crafting, I always have leftover decorating pieces. Furthermore, I have over 6 Cedar trees in my property, so I took some of the branches without distorting the shape of the tree. After I gathered all my materials, I began the process.
At the beginning it went normal and my thought were more of what kind of design I will pick as I go. So, I went further and further, and I kind of liked the way the ball was looking.
Then suddenly, I looked at my cedar branches and noticed that the pile I started with was significantly reduced. However, in spite of the fact, I continue to like the way the project was looking.
Then unexpectedly, I realize that I could turn this initial project into a “Half Kissing Ball” and that is exactly what I did.
Finally, this project cost me nothing, because I had the leftover materials from other projects as well as the Cedar branches in my own back yard. However, if you want to make one, just go to the Dollar store, purchase few decorative pieces and then ask your neighbors, (that is if you don’t have pine trees in your yard) to give you few branches. Place them in a bucket with water for few hours and then, follow my slide presentation. The whole project may cost you less than $5.00. Winning!!!!
