I am making these fabric pomanders for my wedding. I plan to hang them up all over the reception and possibly down the aisle. They are a little cheaper than making them out of flowers.
Fabric (about a yard for 4″ styrofoam ball)
styrofoam ball (I’m using 4″ ones, 3″ ones & 2.5″ ones)
Hot glue gun
floral pins & Ribbon (If you want yours to hang)
Step one: Trace circles onto fabric. For my 4″ balls, I traced 4 inch circles. For my 3 inch balls, 3 inch circles
After cutting out the circles fold in half and put a dot of hot glue in the center of the folded part
Fold right side over onto glue- then put another dot of glue & fold left side over
Poke a hole into the stryrfoam ball, not too deep, and then put hot glue inside the hole. Take the pointed edge of your fabric and push it down into the hole.
I make a line all the way around the ball one way with the fabric and then start filling in the two empty sides.
Step 7: (If you want them to hang)
Find a good place to be the top of your pomander. Take a fabric pin and string it with any ribbon you’d like. Shove the fabric pin into the styrofoam ball and then tie a knot in the ribbon so it will stay attached to the fabric pin and not slip out.
Now you’re done!! These take a bit of time but they look super cool and they aren’t very difficult to make! Way easier for me then the tissue paper pomanders on the Martha Stewart website!

I’m planning on making these soon, and I showed them to FI. His response was, “Why can’t we just buy loofahs!?”.. they just don’t get it.

YSQueen- it takes about a yard of fabric for the four inch balls. I don’t know how many circles I cut, just how much fabric I used all together.
BrianneG- I have actually bought one of those plastic storage bins from Target right after the holidays to store all my DIY stuff in. I make sure these are on the top not getting squished.
Nlmiele- loofahs that is fantastic! Their ideas are so simple…and they don’t get it! But I think once they see it all come together they understand!!

Hey – quick question, how much do you think each one roughly cost to make?
