Hands on Program

"Kissing Balls"


Welcome Gardeners!      

Kissing Balls

Presented by Elaine Shaunnesey 

  1. Before there was mistletoe, there were kissing balls. Popular during the Victorian era in England and Colonial days in America, kissing balls were hung in archways, doorways, and even outdoors as part of a home’s holiday decoration. Learn about the history of the kissing ball and how to make one for your home. If you wish to participate in the hands-on program you will need to bring the following:

    3” Styrofoam ball
    Pieces of fresh cut evergreen (of any kind) at least 6” to 8” long
    Green floral tape
    ​Floral pins and picks 
    Skewer or big nail
    15” piece of wire (26 gauge)
    Please feel free to bring or share any extra supplies you may have

    Elaine will be bringing ribbon, pine cones and other decorations
