I love peonies and think these are beautiful! I plan to make these as well… but I have seen a 4″ pomander and with the size of the peonies I think that may work better? As for the number of flowers… i have seen many DIY guides that recommend 12 or so per pomander, but it really varies on the size of the flower.

I guess I am no help at all! 🙂

i think most of the pomanders i’ve seen were made with 4-5in styrofoam balls… the flowers add a good 2 or 3 inches to the size 🙂

I used a 5 inch styrofoam ball and it turned out humongus!  Here’s a pic (sorry to tell the size, but you can see it in comparison to my thermostat, lol).  Those peonies are beautiful!

I think the 4″ is definitely the better choice.  Peonies are so big and this will be gorgeous.  Believe it or not Walmart has strands of Faux Pearls at extremely reasonable prices.  They are in the craft section.
