Although I was not directly compensated by Cricut, this post is being considered for a prize.
I love that when I am working on a Cricut project that I am constantly inspired. One thing usually evolves into another. I wanted to make something to use in place of standard old mistletoe. While I was whipping up my Paper Bayleaf Wreath the other day, I was inspired to create this Holiday Kissing Ball! It’s the perfect addition to my holiday decor!
I used the same image to cut these smaller leaves that I used for the Paper Bayleaf Wreath. Simply size them down.
I cut out over 50 bayleaves. Grab a styrofoam ball and get to work!
Then I began systematically hot gluing these paper leaves to the styrofoam ball. I started by gluing a ring of them around the middle. Keep adding rings next to previous ring. When I reached the end, I arranged the leaves in a star pattern.
To finish it off, I added a burlap ribbon and hanger.
I LOVE how this turned out! I’m using this instead of mistletoe this year! I think I will leave it hanging in the front entry way. It’s so pretty!
