But, enough of that... on to that crafting! I pulled the pictures and instructions directly from the Good Housekeeping website and I'm sure if you went over there, you could browse around and find lots of different DIY Christmas Crafts, but this Kissing Ball is the one I wanted to share with you today:
*Wrap a 4-inch Styrofoam ball in a 14-inch fabric square; secure with a rubber band.
*Thread the end of 1 1/2 yards of ribbon down through the band, around the ball, and up through the band's other side so ribbon ends match up (knot them to hang the ball).
*Wrap 14 inches of ribbon around the ball's other side (crossing first ribbon, as shown); tuck ends into band.
*Hide band with a shimmery bow and festive sprigs.
Isn't that just darling? And to think of all the color combinations and fun you could have with this idea! Gosh, I just love GH, don't you? ♥
