Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

Things are slowly getting back to normal around here…slowly.  Take, for example, these super cute Valentine’s Day decorations.  I originally saw them in the January issue of Martha Stewart Living, which I believe arrived the first week in December.  I just saw them yesterday.  Martha and her staff made them in white and silver for New Year’s.  Needless to say, by the time I saw them, New Year’s had come and gone.  So, with some quick thinking, the metallic baubles were turned into these Valentine’s kissing balls.

My only problem was that as a rule, I don’t like to post projects without either providing directions or linking to them.  Martha does not yet have this project on her website, and even though they are a simple craft, made using cupcake wrappers, I would certainly not post the directions here as my own.  My solution?  A giveaway!!

So, one lucky reader will receive an entire “Kissing Ball Kit” including:

*the January Issue of Marta Stewart Living

*a 6″ styrofoam ball (the finished kissing ball is about 11″)

*150 cupcake wrappers (I used every last one!)

*a spool of red ribbon for hanging your finished product

*a curved upholstery needle (which was surprisingly hard to find)

Pretty much, all you need to supply is your own hot glue gun, glue sticks, and a few inches of thread for attaching the ribbon.

To enter the giveaway just leave a comment!  The deadline to enter is Sunday, January 17th, and the winner will be announced the next morning.


Good luck!
