MINOR KNIGHT'S ZOOM PRESENTATION ON MAKING A SEED POD KISSING BALL
NOVEMBER 17, 2020
Things you can collect to make your own kissing ball:
ROSE OF SHARON
QUEEN ANN'S LACE
BERRY PRODUCING PLANTS SUCH AS BITTERSWEET, HOLLY & VIBURNUM
SMALL PINE CONES
ARTIFICIAL CRAFT BIRDS
* You can also dry your own flowers
TIPS for collecting,: Since there is little or no no color, this is a real exercise in looking for interesting shapes and textures. For example smooth surfaces like the inside of a milkweed pod, give a lovely shine when painted. Small things that don't have a stalk can be added with a glue gun, or by adding and wrapping a piece of floral wire or toothpick.
