Green Kissing Balls
Step-by-Step Directions for Wedding Flower Tutorials
You can green kissing balls with any variety of florist greenery, including leather leaf fern, spengeri, ivy, or holly leaves. Since this is for a summer wedding, I'm going to green with leather leaf fern and seeded eucalyptus.
I begin at the top first, paying special attention to clustering my greens so that the knot from the ribbon handle is completely hidden.
Then I continue down the rest of the sphere, angling my fern leaves in different directions to keep the ball shape round.
Continue until you have completely covered the ball.
I tend to use only the seeds of the eucalyptus, since the leaves are rather floppy and look a little too large for such a small pomander.
Once the greens have all be inserted, you'll be ready to go on to the next step of flowering in the pomander.
