This is what I made in about 30 minutes. I’m going to carry it with me to the church when we do our site visit to see how much ribbon I’ll need to use for the pomanders to hang them from the edge of the pews for the aisle decor!
It’s just a first draft mind you, and I will begin collecting more seashells, especially sand dollars and starfish!

Very cute! I like how the seashells kind of create a flower-like shape.

Thanks Ladygoodman! I used the same ribbon for these as for the flower girl wands!

Thanks! I have a friend(or) who would’ve created them for me at $22 bucks a pop and I created it for so much less! Yea, I love her, but I felt I could do it.
I knew I wanted elements of land and sea at our wedding, and this was one way I wanted to blend them together. I have a seashell bouquet too, and am adding a cute seashell hot glued to the wand of the flower girl wands too!
This is the first draft..I’m trying to figure out what do I want to do for the next few pomanders? I’m going to wait until after the move to T’s house (june 1) and then go absolutely workout and diy and planning crazy!

I think I might just use a few surgical gloves next time I delve into this..I am still getting mossy glued gunk off my french mani! Yuck!

Thanks so much Ember!
Jingle, I also put up on the atlanta brides section what my fortune teller/cootie catcher looks like! I found a great template for personalizing it just for your party!
You’re so sweet 🙂 I’m just really getting into the diy now. My next plan is to redesign the top of the pomanders and do a more cohesive shell design.
