Tissue Gift Wrap Kissing Ball

Pin It
I have zero decorations for Valentine's Day so today I decided to make my first one.  The best part is that it was free!  I made a kissing ball out of computer paper and tissue wrapping paper.  Here's how I did it:

First I took some paper and crumpled it into a ball.  I continued adding layers and crumpling it until I got to the size I wanted.  I then glued the paper down to keep it in place.
 Then I made flowers using some red tissue gift wrap that I had on hand.
I glued the flowers to the paper ball as I went along.
I added a ribbon before I put the last flower on it so I could hang it up.  And that was it!
