With all of the paper greenery we are doing this season, a mistletoe kissing ball is a must. Though I think the mistletoe would look great with a small bundle of sprigs and tied with a red ribbon, this kissing ball makes quite the statement and is perfect for your holiday party or larger gatherings.

Thanks to our friends at PaperPapers, this DIY project is free! Just scroll down for the template links and photo tutorial.


Memorable Mistletoe

To make this mistletoe kissing ball, just pop over to PaperPapers where she is hosting both the SVG cut file and PDF template. For this project, I used two colors of metallic green and Ice Silver for the white berries. You can also order the paper supplies for the gorgeous metallic look by using this link here.

I will be using these colors for a gorgeous traditional Christmas paper wreath on Monday, mixed in with a little bit of red. You can follow my step-by-step tutorial below to make this pretty decoration. This would make a fun photo booth prop as well, don’t you think? Enjoy! ~ Lia
