Valentine Kissing Ball

This craft was on my original "Valentine To Do List" that I made back in January. It is such an easy craft that someone who thinks they have zero craftiness can do this with no problems! The fun part about this craft is that there are no special tools {not even a hot glue gun} required!
 Supplies:
Styrofoam ball
ribbon
tissue paper
paper clips
Start by adding a hanger to the top of the Styrofoam ball with a piece of ribbon and a paper clip.
 Cut your tissue paper into strips {mine were approximately 4 inches long by 1 inch wide} and then crumple the tissue paper up a little.
 Feed about three pieces of the crumpled tissue paper halfway through a paper clip and then fold the ends up...you will probably have to fluff the tissue paper a little after squeezing it through the paper clip:)
 Stick the paper clip into the Styrofoam ball until the tissue paper is flush with the outside of the ball.
 Continue filling in with your tissue paper. Put them close together for a fuller kissing ball and further apart for a not so fluffy look.
 Hang on a door knob to add a little Valentine fun to your house.
These are even more fun hung up high so you can actually use them as Kissing Balls, but everyone in our house has had the crud so I figured a door knob was a safer bet:)
