Kissing Ball Of Chocolate

It's First Monday for Designer Crafts Connection bloggers and our theme this month is "Love is Handmade"

Just wanted to pop in and share a quick and easy Smoothfoam project anyone can make for many occasions. I think this Kissing Ball would be perfect for a Valentine sweetheart... what do you think?

Smoothfoam Ball and lots of Hershey kisses in Red and Silver 
 1. Start with a plain Smoothfoam 4 1/2 diameter ball
 2. Work in sections and either low temp glue gun or liquid glue can be used.
3.Alternate the red and silver candy pieces.
TIP:The paper slips can be removed from the candy before crafting if you choose not to see the paper.
4. Choose your favorite ribbon and combine a couple colors or patterns. I chose to mix a silver and red and white design. Make loops and using low temp glue gun  attach to top of ball in a decorative manner.
5. I chose to use stickles in between the kisses to cover the white spots...this is totally your choice bare is fine as you see in the above picture.
The hardest part was not eating all the candy before I finished the ball
Smoothfoam products are available at your local Michael's stores or on-line.
