I’m trying to decorate on a budget for the holidays and wanted to design something to spread love and cheer throughout my home. So what’s better than mistletoe, right? But not just any little mistletoe, an oversized collection of mistletoe balls!
First I gathered my supplies…
STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
- One 5″ ball
- Three 4″ balls
- One 3″ balls
- (3) Garlands of various mistletoe & poinsettias (from Dollar Tree)
- (1) Garland of evergreen
- (150) Greenery pins
- (3) spools of wired ribbon
Some sections of the garland with larger stems I was able to just stick directly in the balls of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam.
For the larger 5″ ball of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam I covered the exterior in an evergreen garland. Since this ball didn’t have too much pizzazz to it, I added a large green and red checkered holiday ribbon to the top along with one piece of holly!
I cut two pieces of the white holly ribbon into 24″ sections, two pieces of the red and green glittery ribbon in to 14″ sections, and one piece of the green snowflake ribbon into an 18″ section.
And that’s it! The Oversized Mistletoe Balls of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam are ready for hanging!
