Aren't these wonderful? I made some of these in the early seventies and gave them as Christmas gifts. People just loved the Kissing Balls. The one in the center is from the Martha Stewart website. She gives you instructions for hers. You can also make them square like a dish. Here is the link to the website for the Kissing Balls and the other wreath and square. These are so much fun to make. Try one and surprise someone with it.

Instructions for Kissing Balls and squares

I too love living wreaths and kissing balls. I love fresh cut flowers yr. around .they just say welcome I think.
Have a great day!

Susie said...

Eve-We actually make living wreaths at work. They are really fun to do. I have one for sale right now that I made with all sedum.

I hope you guys are getting braced for Gustav. I will be keeping everyone on the gulf in my prayers.

countrychicken said...

Love the wreaths - just might have to try one. I hope you are out of the path of Gustav. Stay safe. I send prayers for the whole area.

tina said...

I love these! Anything succulent is good during these droughts. Urgh! I am watering as we speak. I think I'll make a shallow hypertufa and fill it with the different sedums and see how that works. Thanks for the link!

Eve said...

Susie and country, we are getting prepared. We have Hannah and two more tropcial depressions right behind Gustav. So I don't know how many bullets we can dodge but we will leave when told to evacuate. With three cats and a dog..: )..fun in a motel room. Thank God for Motel 6 who lets us bring all our animals.

How very interesting that is. I did check out your link. I have never heard of a kissing wreath. It looks so pretty.
I know you live on the gulf coast. I am praying for the safety of your area. If you can please keep us posted.

Frances, said...

Hi Eve, that is reassuring to know that you can take your animals to the motel with you. Here's hoping that is isn't necessary to leave your home, and if it is that all will be well when you return. I have never tried those wreaths but have seen the forms for sale at Kinsmen. Those are stunning, especially on a garden gate. Thanks for showing us and we will be thinking good thoughts for you all.

Cindy said...

Eve ~ Those are so beautiful. I love the variety of flowers shown in those pictured.

You are in my thoughts and I hope you keep dodging those storms.

Beth said...

Eve - I hope you can stay out of harm's way with Gustav fast approaching. Thinking of you and all the people in your part of the country. Take care.

DP Nguyen said...

Those are beautiful!!! I wish I was crafty enough to make something like that, but it is just so pretty.

Rose said...

Eve, Do you remember the living wreath I showed on a post a few days ago? Oh my, mine looks nothing like yours! These are beautiful! I'd love to know what plants you included in yours. Thanks for the link to Martha Stewart, too; I'll have to check that out.

Glad you to know you have evacuation plans, if necessary. I hope that Gustav passes you by.

Brenda Kula said...

I've seen this done before. I think they are just incredible! I need to get myself together and make one!

Eve said...

No, I missed that post Rose but I will put a link so others can go see how you did it. I think it turned out really pretty. I like the pink flowers.

How Rose did it

PGL said...

Absolutely gorgeous living wreaths! I've seen these done on gardening shows, but never tried one myself. I think it would be fun to make one with sedums. :) I hope this storm doesn't hit you guys.

Jon said...

Always a treat to visit your lovely blog....hope Gustav spares y'all.....stay safe and sound and batten down the hatches!

Carla said...

Neat! I have a mistletoe ball and now I know its a mistletoe 'kissing' ball! I guess this way you could have one to kiss under year round:)

GreenJeans said...

Eve, I remember making kissing balls years ago. Thanks for the reminder about them! :)

We're on the east coast of Florida so we're watching out for Hanna. But we're watching Gustav and wishing it would just go away. Stay safe!
