I am making my first pomander tonight. I have a few questions I am hoping you can help answer for me.
1- I couldn’t find the right color of tissue paper, so ended up getting white. I am thinking this will just be my practice round anyway (but it has gone supprisingly well), but was wondering about painting the balls. Has anyone done this? I think I read somewhere you can do water color paint? Is it difficult? Should I just wait and search around for the proper colored paper?
2- Has anyone done pomanders with more than one color? Does it work to do one colored “flower” next to another or does it end up looking too busy/ like a big mess?
3- How long a ribbon do I need to put on them? How do I attach it? Just a little glue and some wire? I am planning on hanging them from my pews for my ceremony.
Alright, I think that’s all for now.
Thanks so much for your help!
