Tie Ribbons

Knot two ribbons together, tightening the knot against the sphere. Repeat with two more ribbons (Images 1 and 2). Tie the final ribbon in a bow to hang the kissing ball. Trim all ribbon ends at an angle in similar lengths. Hang from a doorway, arch or ceiling. Tip: Lightly mist fresh or preserved greenery to extend its life.
