EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Hanging in an entryway, a kissing ball welcomes guests with a romantic touch. Instead of eucalyptus, you may like to add mistletoe or holly for a hint of Christmas past or, if you're not fond of eucalyptus, use popped popcorn to fill in the open spaces between cranberries.

Having trouble finding craft straight pins? Look for them in the notions department of sewing and fabric stores.
