I haven’t made one myself, but check out marthastewart.com for instructions.  I believe Martha sticks a chopstick or a skewer through the ball, pulls the doubled ribbon through the hole, and knots it at the bottom.

I’d keep them in the fridge.

I made a pomamnder from floral foam and it was fine for 3 days. It does not dry out overnight. I kept mine out sitting on top of a wide mouthed vase.

Flowers last longer if refrigerated but not in a fridge full of food. (bacteria will ruin/damage flowers) If it’s too cold it might freeze them. So be careful! 

Is the foam you bought caged? The foam I used was a cage so I tied a a green pipe cleaner into a loop and then tied the ribbon to that. If it’s a not then I have hot glued a floral pick into it and then tied the ribbon to that. I’m sure you can go into Martha’s site and find a tutorial or on Youtube.


I hope this helps a little!
