Prep Time


5” foam ball
Red acrylic craft paint
24-gauge beading wire
Hot glue gun/glue sticks OR wooden toothpicks
1-2 12-oz. bags Ocean Spray® Fresh Cranberries
Desired holiday trim: ribbon, mistletoe, holly, ivy, bells


Paint foam ball with red craft paint. Set aside to dry.

Cut an 18" piece of wire and fold it in half. Push folded wire all the way through the center of foam ball, leaving a 1” wire loop extending at bottom of ball and 3” of wire extending at top.

Using hot glue gun or toothpicks, attach cranberries to ball, covering it completely. Twist wires at top of ball into a simple hook for hanging. Use ribbon to tie mistletoe and other desired holiday trim to wire above and below ball, and hang with hook.

Kissing ball will last several days. Discard once berries begin to soften. To extend the life of your decoration, you can spray with an even coating of shellac.

Missing Mistletoe !

My husbron and I were in a bit of a pickle, no mistletoe was in our area, since it wasn't Christmas ! Who were they to deprive us of this occasion! Thankfully OceanSpray came to the rescue with this fun and somewhat sexy Christmas gift!

A berry-beautiful kiss

Kristen from Bristol, CT

I made this last x-mas because I was having a work x-mas party. Let's just say the employees are a little uptight, so to lighten the mood a liitle I figured I make this and have everyone that walks under it share a special kiss!! Oh, did the magic happen. One couple that shared a kiss are still together today (1 year later) and are actually talking about tieing the knot!! Thanks Ocean Spray for this beautiful idea, I'll use it every Christmas to come!

A berry Kiss-mas!

Lyna from Dayton, OH

This little ball may be pretty, but it packs a lot of power! The power to bring joy and laughter, and people closer together through one little kiss. Beautiful Ocean Spray Cranberries, a bit of foliage, a little ribbon, and a lotta' love. What a great combination!*****
