It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it looks like you can still see some of the white of the ball… That’s sort of the problem with using large flowers like that- it’s tough to get all over coverage.  You might want to add some foliage to keep the ball from showing through.  Other than that, it looks really good!  We are also using pomanders made with silk flowers for aisle decorations, I doubt anyone will be inspecting them closely enough to determine if they’re fake or real 🙂

How about putting in some very small filler faux flower?  Stephantois?  That can cover the sparse areas.

And yes…DO do a tutorial!  I’ve found some etsy vendors who do make the pomanders and it’s about 15-20 bucks per pop..so if you’re short on time, there are other economical ways to accomplish your wedding style.

I think you did a great job!  Just find a small filler flower in your wedding colors and fill in!  But as is, it’s great..

The easiest way to get a "full" looking pomander ball is to use carnations. They are so full, and have a nice texture when used in large quantities.

Here’s a picture of the kissing balls that my flower girls carried. The florist made them with silk carnations (so the girls could keep them), and they were only $14 apiece. Can’t beat that! That’s the same price as making your own, plus your don’t have to handle the stress of actually making them. =)

I think it looks good, I think using a filler flower that is something smaller would fill all of those gaps. But its a great start

I’d be surprised if the green stood out less than the white.  It would have to be a close match to the green in the rest of the piece, I would think.  I’d love to see a photo of the one with green!

 I think it looks great anyway, very realistic looking!
