Spray starch, maybe? Hairspray seems like it would work! Or maybe try a clear spray paint/sealant?

I would try spray starch on one to see how it looks once it dries.  Hairspray might make them sticky, but then again, I’m not sure what starch would do either!

for this reason exactly, girls, i ditched my idea of doing tissue paper pomanders and switched to artificial floral pomanders instead. And i must say…they were WORLDS easier to make and I LOVE THEM! If you haven’t made a bunch already, I’d consider switching and trying out the artificial floral pomanders. Theres lots of posts about them here on weddingbee…good luck!

Or, make the pomanders but don’t fluff them out until you reach your destination.

did you ever have any luck with transporting them/stiffening them??? I am also doing these and am transporting pre-fluff but wonder if this worked for you?
