I almost did this centerpiece myself, so I studied up on it! Here’s what you will need:

 

Styrofoam ball

String of crystals, beads (whatever will hang low)

Vase

Ribbon

Hot glue gun

flowers!

 

So what you do, it take the flowers and cut the stems to about 3-5 inches.  You then poke the stem into the styrofoam ball (I used the backside of a pen to make the hole first) and then put the stem in.  Use hot glue to keep it in place. (That’s the part that takes forever, letting it dry) Then place the next flower head next to the flower head and see where the stem should poke in next. 

 

Now just make sure that you poke and glue in the strand of crystals that will hang low and then glue in the flowers around it!

 

Wrap ribbon around the vase and glue down where you want it.  Place completed flower ball on top and tada!

PS – Depending on the size of your vase, you will only need a 2 or 3 inch stryofoam ball.  I made 12″ in diamater flower balls using 3″ balls.  It depends on how long you cut your stems.

Leave some of the stem out. That way you get the height of fullness you want!
