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.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE THAT PARTICIPATED!
