It turned out great!!

I will making these too and getting married in October.

I’m thinking of buying the tissue paper in the next couple of months and start making them.

I have a couple of plastic totes that I’m using to store wedding stuff in.

I figure it’s one less thing I have to worry about plus I get to cross it off my to-do list.

Your tissue ones turned out great! I’m using silk flowers for mine! My tissue attempt ending with me ripping up all the tissue paper in a blind rage. lol They store easy so why not just get it out of the way.

I second the suggestion to start now. If you have free time, put it to use, because you may not have it later.

If you have the space a great way to store them is to get wardrobe boxes that you use for moving. You can hang the pomanders inside , close the box to keep it dust free and they won’t get crushed.

I think they look great 🙂

If you have a lot of them to do, I would start now and do a couple a week or so.

I made silk hydrangea ones quite awhile back and have them stored for the wedding. I am glad I did them early because I keep adding other things to my “wedding to do” list. I swear I am driving myself crazy with all of the little things, but I know they will all be worth it. If you are doing mostly DIY, I highly recommend following in my footsteps and getting stuff done early because there will always be something else that you will want to do.

@Miss Tattoo: lol, that is exactly why I did not even attempt the tissue ones. I know my limits 🙂

i’d do anything you’re comfortable doing early as early as you can. It seems like I just keep finding more things I need to do and I’m glad I did a lot of stuff early. I bought a couple of plastic storage bins for all of the wedding stuff to keep it safe.

I started tissue ones for my sister and did the same thing as Miss Tattoo….I went tasmanian devil on that tissue paper b/c I got SO frustrated with the ripping paper. Yours turned out tons better than my one attempt. I ended up  doing fake carnation pomanders. Definitely start now b/c there will be weeks when you can’t bear to look at another styrofoam ball.

I think that you should totally start now, if you have the time. Things creep up later on, so it might help to start.

Also, you can make them (accordion fold) but not fluff them yet so that they can look more “fresh”.
