Do it yourself Silk Flower Pomanders?

Recommended Posts

So I am trying to figure out how to make pomanders for our reception. I am trying to make them myself because I was quoted $50/pomander for silk!!!! I have seen videos on how to make them with real flowers but wasnt sure if it was the same with silk? ..does anyone know?? I know when making them with real flowers you have to soak the flower foam so that the flowers are hydrated and so that they are easier to poke through the foam. Apparently I'm not the greatest DIY Bride...help anyonehuh.gif??

I know someone who made pomanders by taking a skewer to make a hole through the styrofoam ball and looping a ribbon in it and knotting it at the bottom. Then she poked holes for the silk flowers and put hot glue in the holes and stuck the flowers in those. They turned out great.

My mom made one of those for my sister's wedding. She made one for the flower girl to carry and she also made topiary trees for the centrepieces. She just bought styrofoam balls and used artificial roses and just stabbed them in and used a few sewing pins to keep the ribbon attached.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
