Kissing Balls & Paint Chip Hearts

Ahhh the crape paper kissing balls. I found these on Pintrest and fell in love. They are pretty easy to make, but came out to be heavy which I wasn't expecting. Hanging them took a little more then just the tack I was imagining.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find brown crepe paper streamers? I was ready to run around town, but shockingly found them at Walmart, on clearance no less. What a great day!
I used Close To My Heart ribbon to make bows to hang them from. I just pushed them into the balls with large hat pins.
The next project, also from Pintrest was the hearts cut from paint chips. I used my Cricut and cut the hearts in 3 different sizes from shades of pink and brown.

Then I put them back to back and zig zagged them together in long streamers. Scott hung them for me in the corner of the my craftroom along with a copper mesh fruit basket filled with pine cones and pink balls.
