I love making gift baskets for my friends and Dollar Tree is a great place to find just the right items for making personalized gifts.  I can pick and choose items I know they will love and use every day, and even personalize it with something that reminds them of an inside joke or a fun time we had. I’m sentimental, what can I say?

 

Today is a little different though. My friend is having a house warming party and I want to give her something special to help decorate her new home.

 

I’m going to show you how to make a Rosette Kissing Ball — this will look so pretty hanging in my friend’s new home. (Pan kissing ball) You can also use this same technique to make a wreath, embellish gifts, and so much more. 

 

You won’t believe how easy this is to make… it only takes a few things from Dollar Tree to get started. You’ll need:

  • A foam ball for the base. You could also use a toy baseball or whiffle ball.
  • Two rolls of crepe paper streamers — you can choose any color you like or even use several different colors.
  • Scissors 
  • Ribbon and Glue 

What You’ll Need From Dollar Tree:

  • Whiffle Ball
  • 2 Rolls of Crepe Paper Streamers
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Glue

First, cut the streamers into 24” strips. A single 24” strip will make a rosette about this size.

Crumble each strip and then flatten it back out like this. This makes the streamer more flexible and the finished rosette more realistic looking.

 

Next, fold the top 1/2 of the streamer down like this… this will make the petals look softer. Then, start at one end and roll the strip a little to form the center of the rosette, remember to pinch the streamer together at the base. 

Then, you just keep gathering, rolling, and pinching the rest of the strip so it resembles a rose.  See! You can roll some tighter and some looser to vary the size of the rosettes. Add a drop of glue to the end so your rosettes don’t unravel.

 

Next, cover the bottom of the rosette with glue and simply stick it onto the whiffle ball. Now just repeat until you have the entire ball covered.

 

The last step is to cut a strip of ribbon and glue it onto the ball so you can hang it. 

 

I think my friend’s gonna love it!
