How do you make a pomander ball? Is it difficult? Costly?

I bought 6" styrofoam balls from the dollar store, and then I shopped around for all the silk flowers I wanted. I bought dahlias, cabbage roses, hydrangeas, and some daisies from Walmart, Michael's and the dollar stores. Get a pair of wire cutters and cut the flower stems then jab them into the balls. But before you do, you need to create a tunnel from one side of the ball to the other so you can pull a ribbon through and tie a knot so that you have your hanger. I will post a DIY thread on how to make these :)

I just came across this post.  Do you have pictures from your wedding?  We're thinking about doing the same thing and I never thought about adding shells to it!

 

Thank you!

Hi girls! 

 

I got married last August 6th and everything was perfect!! We have returned home one week ago from our honey moon and we want to return! lol

 

So, I wanted to share my DIY centerpieces. After the wedding at the beautiful beach gazebo, we had appetizers and cocktails and later the dinner followed by a party at the beach of the resort.

 

The flowershop charged me a lot for the flowers for the gazebo, bouquests, bouttonieres, centerpieces, etc so I decided to change the centerpieces at the appetizers place for a cheap ones.

 

I bought in Spain the fake fucsia orchids and the fucsia floating candles. I did not buy the vases, I got them free for this moment from the resort, after asking to my planner. As tables were small, we had one for each. My planner did fill them with sand and add some small stones. It looked much more beautiful than in the pics. 

 

I only spent 30 usd instead of the almost 300 usd that flowershop wanted to charge us.

 

That is how it looked (sorry for the pic, it was taken for one guest).

I love your DIY centerpiece. I was thinking of similar idea. But using flowers from Michael's is much more cost efficient. Thanks for the idea!
