Are you looking for a DIY Kissing ball? Look no further, you don’t have to spend a fortune, you can make one on a budget with just a few dollars.
Have you seen an artificial kissing ball in the store? They can range from $20-100! I wanted one so badly, but not for some of those prices. Not all of them are made with fresh greens either. What is a girls to do? DIY it of course with just a few supplies from the dollar store!
Here is a picture of one I found online at Amazon for $30 – this was one of the less expensive ones I found.

DIY Kissing Ball Step-By-Step Instructions
I bought 2 bunches of yellow daisies at Walmart and lucky me – they were on clearance for $1.50 each! I pulled the flower tops of the stems, and for this project, I needed about 20 flower heads.
I bought a 3 pack of Styrofoam balls from Dollar Tree so the foam ball could be the center of my kissing ball. Each ball was 2.4 inches.
I cut a piece of twine, added a knot to the bottom of it to make a loop, and I hot glued the knot to the top of the ball.
I added some hot glue to the flower base…
and I stuck the little part of the stem into the Styrofoam ball starting at the top.
I continued doing this around in a circle adding more flowers until I made it to the bottom of the ball and the whole ball was covered.
When it was done it looked like this. I am so excited at how it turned out!
You can hang it inside or out.
Now you can make it any desired length short or use a longer piece of ribbon, as it depends on where you’ll be hanging it. I hung mine outside, you can hang them on your front porch, or make a kissing ball ornament for everyone’s Christmas trees.
