Kissing Ball Topiary

Happy Valentine's Day!
Before all the pink turns into green and four leaf clovers I wanted to share one last Valentine's Decoration I made.
It's so festive and fun.
 To make it I cut out 18 inch strips of crepe paper and glued rolled flowers on a styrofoam ball.
 This process took a few hours--or several nights of rolling and gluing, rolling and gluing and then some.
 The finished product is all worth it though.  I wrapped a wooden dowel with ribbon and stuck it in the ball.  The base is a vase I had, I also lined the vase with the pink crepe paper and used plastic bags to hold the stick up.  To cover the bags I used spanish moss from the dollar store.
 At first I put it in my dining room with the wax paper hearts, but it just didn't look right.
Up on the mantel it looks great.  My little girl added the bear.
