Cute! Are those silk carnations?
You should do a tutorial. Those are really cute!!
hahaha. silk ALL the way.
i may do a tutorial when i start on my non-trial pomanders.
these are made with 10 inch diameter foam balls and super cheap ivory carnation– on sale at basically any craft store.
i LOVE how adorable they turned out..
and it takes just under 15 minutes when you actually get the hang of it.
FYI: here is the second easiest wedding craft ever.
it’s a corsage made of silk leaves and flowers, florist tape, and florist wire.
it could also be used as a boutenierre. i’m making something like these for my aunts, mom, his grandma and Future Mother-In-Law.
Wow.. you have no idea how valuable this post is to me. This is my weeekend warrior! I am going to the craft store tonight to try this, as this was mine and my flower girls mom (BM) take on thsi evening.. and yours are beautiful! I am so excited to hear you say they were fairly easy… can’t wait to give it a try!
haha. i’m SO glad that someone else is doing this!
i didnt use glue or anything because my glue gun is a piecer..
i watched this tutorial before i started. they use real flowers but the only difference with silk flowers that you put glue on the end of them stems and stick em in.
if you cut the stems evenly then its really hard for it not to look even. the size of the flower ball depends on the length you cut the stems and the size of th foam ball. my foam ball was about 10 inches but the ball turned out to be 12 inches when it was finished.
i used some pins like this to attach the ribbon, then i would glue that on just to secure it.
my only "pointer" would be not to use wired ribbon, it is probably uncomfortable to hold and it looks really funny when the ribbon sticks up when not in use.. but that’s just my preference:)
What a great post!!! I am going to try this one this weekend!
Do you mind if I ask how much one ball cost to make?
it all depends on what flowers you use.
mine cost about ten bucks, the foam ball was like 3.49
and the flowers were pretty cheap.
my mom paid so i’m not EXACTLY sure.
wow those look amazing…good job
@BrooksnTiff: the foam ball that you used, I’m assuming it wasn’t a wet foam ball (or one that could get wet) since you arn’t using fresh flowers, correct?
I’m planning on making these with fresh flowers and am researching different foams 🙂
the ones for fresh flowers are called "oasis".
idk if that’s the name brand.. or the type but it seems to be the most popular.
