D.I.Y. Pomander Balls!

REALLY like the look of pomander balls (also known as kissing balls) but not the price? Depending on the size of each ball, they can range in price from $20 to over $200 a piece from a florist! Each ball is packed full of flowers, which is why the cost is so much. 

If your creative or not, there is an easy way to get this similar look by doing it yourself. Yes, I said yourself! This project may take up many hours and a few hands, but it will cut your costs in half plus some.


  What you need: 
Choice of fabric (about 2 yards for a 6" ball)
Styrofoam balls (depending on the size you want)
Object to trace for a circle
Hot glue gun
Floral pins and ribbon to hang 

Here are a few blog sites and websites we found very helpful for instructions:   

Don't let the costs of real pomander balls stop you from the look you are going for. There are always other inexpensive ways to gain the look you want, just may take more of your time, but with a few friends to help, you can whip these up in no time! Enjoy :)
