I am in desparate need of opinions on my DIY pomander centerpiece. This is exactly how I pictured it being and I just want to get other opinions on it. I am still working out how I want to hang the crystals…but I love everything about it…so here goes…be gentle, bees
I apologize in advance for the pics…taken with my iPhone and don’t really know how to resize yet…Thanks!

Sorry, I think the curlycues sticking out from the top are awful. I would recommend adding more crystals of varying lengths at the bottom – it looks a little naked.

I like it. I’m planning to use pomander balls as my centerpieces too. If u don’t mind me asking, what size ball did u use? & how many flowers did the ball need?

I think the look great, the only thing that i might change is to cut down the stems on the curly peices, so that they dont seem so”leggy”. you did a great job.

I agree with taking out the curlicues at the top and adding more crystals at the bottom- maybe mix some clear in with the purple?

I love the curly cues and am going to use them. I like the idea of cutting them down some. That’s what I was going to do…since this was my first trial. I am also going to add more crystals because the spiral effect I was going for didn’t work with only 4. I am using only purple crystals.
@Soon2bMrs.S & @mattsgirl813 : I used 6 inch styrofoam balls…and about 45 purple carnations.

I love the look with more crystals and without the curly cues.

I think its a very cute piece…
I think the little curly things are abit too tall, maybe doing them a bit shorter?
Also, maybe add alittle to the bottom so its not so bare?

My honest opinion, I think they need a lil something extra too dark lacking something I dont know.. def agree with the curly things on top coming off

I agree with PP that the curlies need to go. Maybe try bumping the ball size up to an 8 inch to give the ball more drama. The crystals would look nice if you added a different shape crystal, 3-4, leading down to the big crystal. What are they hanging from?
And nice job! I know that it is hard to put your own centerpiece together and get the exact look you want. Trial and error. Trial and error. 🙂

Personally I don’t really like the curly things sticking out the top. I think your pomander and stand looks very classy and well done, but the curly sticks looks like a child’s art project a bit. I would maybe remove those and add a few more of the hanging drops, maybe in a clear crystal or silver colour?
ETA: Sorry I just read that you are not willing to get rid of the curly cues, in that case I would definitely make them much shorter.
