Kissing balls have been popular since the middle ages of England. Now they are used by many people for various holidays and events, including Christmas. This Make it Merry DIY Kissing Ball is one of the best and easy crochet patterns you will find related to Christmas crafts. DIY kissing balls are fun alternatives to standard mistletoe and can be hung up throughout the holiday season. Red kissing balls like this one are even more festive. You won't believe how simple it is to learn how to make kissing balls or how you went without one until now.

Who doesn't want to sneak a smooch under the mistletoe or kissing ball? I know I am always looking for the kissing area when I go to a party. Everyone has at least one place where you can enjoy the feeling of getting a holiday smooch. I think it is a must-have in every holiday party.
