Looks AMAZING! But I’d go ahead and add the tuelle if I were you. That loft is HUGE and even with your pomander being quite a bit larger than average, it seems a little lonesome up there!!

Thanks-you’ve inspired me to go faux!  I’ll be doing a pomander for my flower girl and a ring pillow!

Alright, update:  I ended up purchasing (ack, I know!) my ring pillow BUT I did make the pomander according to the directions above and it’s super easy!  I bought maybe a 5-7" ball and bought maybe 6 stems of hydrangeas and didn’t have to make any return trips.  I didn’t pin my ball, just hot glued it.  Word to the wise:  If you’re using pale flowers, use a white ball, dark, use a green ball.  Unfortunately, I couldnt find a white ball at 3 separate stores, so I had to use a green one for my mocha colored hydrangea, and while it doesnt look bad to the uninformed eye (ie my fiance), I’d still have preferred it to be white.  Good luck!

I’m planning on making these as my pew decorations!  FYI: If anyone has a Garden Ridge in their area, I found 6 inch foam balls there for $3.99 – which is the cheapest I’ve seen!  I bought ten of them and plan on alternating pews with them.  I need to find some discount silk flowers to use though – any ideas?  I don’t really want to pay more than $2 a stem!

Sweet!! I love that you used white flowers, it makes it look more real!! I love it. Maybe I can do this and add some sprigs of wire with crystals on them.

You did such a good job!
