Here's what you need to make your own kissing balls:
1 Styrofoam ball of any size, the bigger the ball to start with the bigger your over all project will be.
Hot glue gun and lots of glue sticks.
A pencil or some kind of wooden stick.
Tons and tons and tons of circles cut in your choice of fabric. The more circles the better!
You can leave out this last fold if you want too, keep in mind you'll end up with looser ruffles.
Now place a small amount of hot glue in the hole you created on the first step. Pinching together your folded circle, slide the pointed end of the triangle into the hot glue and hold for just a few seconds until the glue starts to set.
You're going to fold your ribbon over and tie both ends of it to your wire hanger or floral pin so measure the right length for where you want your kissing ball to go.
Now you're ready to hang your cute pomanders up. Please ignore my ugly curtains in my bedroom. They are simply there to keep out the light until I can figure out what window treatment I really want. I think these will look cute hanging with whatever I finally decide on. I'm working on a few more of these of other side and I think I might throw in a gray one or two to add a bit more color.
Find a good spot to force your floral pick/wire hanger into the ball and then dab a small amount of hot glue on top of the knots so that everything is sealed in pretty well.
Wouldn't these be cute in a miniature version for a Christmas tree? Maybe next year! :)
