i also am gonna use carnations. Also going to buy from Ebay and dollar stores. Ebay has sellers sellling 1000 carnations for 40$.. And i am using a 4 inch ball for short centerpieces and a 7or 8 inch for tall vases. I made one with a 6 inch ball and it looked great , I just want it a little bigger for a tall vase! The 6 inch ball took apporx. 35 carnations!! Good luck

There is an internet DIY video on pomanders I saw – they used full size carnations to do an 8 inch pomander and it took 50 carnations.  I did a test run with a 3 inch foam ball and button mums and that took 35-40 small-headed green button mums.  I would look on Save-On-Crafts.com for foam balls if you are using fresh.
