As a kid, one of the Christmas traditions I loved best was hanging the Mistletoe. I got so excited anytime someone was caught under it and was tickled pink to get a kiss from my Dad if it was me! That is why I was so happy to see Hershey’s take on this traditional holiday decor. What better way to make Mistletoe than with Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses. Plus it’s a great DIY Christmas craft for you and the kids to work on together. The best part is you can eat it when your done! Make a few and hang them for your Holiday Celebration, then let guests take them home as favors after the party!

Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate Kissletoe
- Three-inch Styrofoam balls
- Wired ribbon
- Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates
- Glue (low-heat glue gun, non-toxic craft glue, glue stick or confectioners’ glue)
1. Using a pen or pencil, push through each ball to make a hole through the center of the ball (from end to end).
2. Feed the ribbon through the first ball and tie a knot at the bottom.
3. Leave a couple of inches of ribbon above the first ball and tie another knot. Then feed the ribbon through the second ball setting it on the second knot. Finally, leave several inches of ribbon and then tie a bow at the top.
4. Using a hot glue gun, glue Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate on each ball. Once dry, you can hang your Kissletoe by the bow end.
