Deciding on a pomander rather than flower basket was out of sheer convenience. I know I wanted to do my own bouquet and centerpieces so i figured why not get the easy stuff out of the way. This DIY was the easiest and it only took me 30 mins to make two pomanders. My inspiration....
First of you'll need your supplies: Styrofoam balls (I used 4" balls), flowers of choice, peal headed pins (my choice) or you can hot glue gun as well and ribbon.
Instructions (Easy Peasy)
I started by poking a hole all the way through the ball for the ribbon. I just used the stem tip for this part. I couldn't find our long screw driver so i just improvised
Feed your ribbon through the hole and tie off a knot at the end to secure it.
Now the easy part, if you are not using the pins; Clip off the flower stems (leave about 1-2 inches of stem) and start poking them into the ball. I used the pearl headed pins to secure my flowers.
Voila,... here's the final product.
so now i'm thinking, maybe i can use these as my centerpieces as well. Any ideas ladies? Instead of the clear vase, i can use blumebox (http://www.blumebox.com/)
