Y’all recently saw the cedar and Orange Toparies that I made. I love them so much, I decided to add a Kissing ball made from similar materials.
Here is how to make a Kissing Ball using fresh herbs, cedar and dried oranges. It looks great and smells even better.
- 5 inch Styrofoam ball
- floral pins
- hot glue gun
- jute string
- dried oranges – see how to make your own.
- sage sprigs
- cedar sprigs

Adding Sage Sprigs to Kissing Ball
First, use a ice pick or another sharp object to punch a hole in the ball. Add a drop of glue and insert a short sprig of sage.
Then gather sprigs of cedar and using the floral pins, surround the sage with cedar. This will form a flowers like look for each sprig of sage.
Continue this process until the ball is covered with sage and cedar.
Add Dried Orange slices to Kissing Ball
Next, this is how to add the orange slices to the kissing ball. Just add a drop of hot glue and randomly press the orange slices onto the ball.

Add Jute String for hanging
Finally, using a floral pin, attach a piece of jute string to the ball. Add a drop of hot glue to secure the string.
I also made some super easy snowflakes from paper bags. I have a video tutorial here.
Hang your ball
Hang your DIY Kissing Ball in an area where you can enjoy the smell and maybe a kiss or two.
