Here's a fun little St. Patrick's Day craft you can do in about an hour. I call it a St. Patrick's Day kissing ball, but you can call it whatever you want. I'm thinking it's so cute, I'll leave it out all spring.
I found my little green flowers at Michael's craft store in the wedding section. They are meant for confetti I think.
I also picked up some green ribbon from Michaels with a green circle pattern on them and a foam ball in the floral aisle.
I put one coat of Rust-oleum Camouflage on it that we had left over from our train table project. It dried almost instantly on the ball.
Then I started gluing the flowers directly to the foam ball with the ol' hot glue gun. I think I only used one stick of glue for the project. Not bad! After all the flowers were glued on, I glued on my ribbon.
Here is the finished ball hanging over the doorway between our entryway and living room. It's so pretty and reminds me of a preserved boxwood topiary. But mine has shimmers of gold in it. You know, like the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow? Nothing says St. Patrick's Day more than a pot of gold.
Here's another view looking into our living room.
And another shot.
"May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more. May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door."
Happy Early St. Patrick's Day to you.
