Fabric Kissing Balls

I have always loved being crafty, and I was so excited to make all the little details for our wedding!

I saw these on Pinterest and wanted to DIY something similar


It was definitely one of the most time consuming projects, but in the end it was completely worth it!

Thanks to my Mom and Mother-in-law for all their help! :)

3. Paint lanterns

4. Glue pointed edge of fabric to lantern — in random order, without leaving any big gaps (painting your lantern will help camouflage any open areas)
