christmas kissing ball

Insert three lengths of craft wire into the top center of the moss or styrofoam ball, extending it out of the bottom by about an inch.

At the bottom, individually bend each wire end to make a "U" shape. Push the bent wire ends into the bottom of the ball to secure. At the top, twist the wire ends together to form a small loop for hanging. Cut away any excess wire.

Cut or break the holly into pieces about 3 inches long and secure them to the ball with the greening pins. Add boxwood and rosemary in the same way until entire ball is covered. Add red berries where desired.

Thread a length of ribbon through the wire hanging loop and knot the ends together. Tie another piece into a bow at the base of the hanging loop and a piece to the bottom of the kissing ball.
