Thanks to some great posts here, I found instructions that seem helpful in creating pomanders for my wedding.
I’d like to work on this project during the winter, so that I’m not stressed doing it last minute in the spring. Where in the NYC area can I purchase nice but inexpensive silk flowers and I guess foam balls? Do I need anything else?
Trying to make about 10-12 and I’d like to keep my budget well under $50, if possible. If you ordered materials online, would appreciate that info as well.
Thanks in advance. 🙂

I made the martha stewart ones, they look like real carnations, but its out of tissue paper! you wouldn’t even believe how real they look, even my florist thought they were real. bought the paper from the container store. heres one example of them, but i did mine all one color in ivory.
