I’ve always loved kissing balls but I’ve never had a good place to hang one so I never bothered to make one. This year I was looking though the spring clearance flowers at Joann’s (they were all marked down to $1.29, how could I not look?) and I found three bunches of red ranunculus looking flowers. I also picked up a few other things to make up this happy ball of flowers.
Poinsettias just scream Christmas to me (it’s a nice scream, very Christmas carol-y) but our cat Rita eats houseplants so I don’t dare bring real ones into my house. Instead I buy lots and lots of fake ones. I use them to decorate the tree and last year I used them to make a candle wreath.
