My DIY Silk Pomander for the little ones

Recommended Posts

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/)

Hey MZTHAN6!! These are BEAUTIFUL! They look amazing, and it only took 30 minutes, fabulous!!!

I've never heard of a blumebox, but these are really fun ideas to display your pomanders during the reception.

I like the idea of putting them atop a vase, but I think the vase might be just a tad too big. I think if it was a little lower in height it would be more proportional to the pomander.

Are you only having 2 centerpieces? Not sure of how large your wedding group is or where you're having the reception- But, I think these would be beautiful even hanging from nearby overheads [trees, in between lighting, sides of chairs]. Just a thought, not sure if it would work with what you're doing. I'm sure you've seen those paper lanterns that you can hang in various shaped & sizes above your reception area- I'm thinking something to that affect. But if it's only 2, I would stick with keeping them on the tables LOL

Hope this helped cheers.gif

Thanks JennyBenz. I'm not using the vase the I have on this picture. I was thinking of more something like this.

This vase is from blumebox. I'm still undecided whether to use pomanders as my centerpieces; If I decided to use them, I was thinking of making them on 5" and 4" styrofoam balls.
