Hello bees! after stumbling apon this website over and over again and getting tons of useful information from all of you I decided to give it a try!
I am looking for 6-8″ half sphere styrofoam balls. Either the soft floral foam or a harder styrofoam. I need them for my centerpieces and can only seem to find them for more then I’d like to spend. I need a lot of them. Possibly 16-18.
Now, I work at Michaels… and we do sell them… at 6.99 a piece (gross) even with a coupon (cause my employee discount is awful) they would be roughly $4. Multiplied by 18 and we’re talking $72!!! on styrofoam!!!
So, if anyone knows of some place cheaper to buy them or can think of any good alternatives I would be soooo happy!!
I purchased oversized champagne flutes which I’m using on the tables. They will have something inside(haven’t decided yet..possibly a sandcastle but thats another issue) and I am making tissue paper flowers to come out the top. I figured the styrofoam would be the easiest to work with as a rounded base. I was even going to carve out a channel underneath for stability on the glass and line the bottom with reflective paper.
thank you 🙂
