How to make Flower Ball, Pomader, Kissing Ball
Pomanders, Kissing Balls, Floral Balls
Supplies you will need to make your pomanders, also known as kissing balls or flower balls.
You will want to use colors from your wedding color scheme to make your flower balls/pomanders. You can also insert pearl picks, crystals, or feathers between flowers.
Supplies needed to make pomanders: Ribbon, foam balls(green or white), hot glue gun, floral pick/sticks, spray paint, piece of flat foam.
*1. Spray paint foam ball. Put a floral pick in bottom of foam ball, this will make it easier to paint. To let it dry, stick it into a piece of flat foam.
Spray paint will be used to spray foam ball to create a background color, matching colors of the flowers you will glue to the ball. If you are using red roses, then you will spray paint your foam ball with red. By doing this you won't see big spaces of white or green color from the foam ball between your flowers.
*2. Cut ribbon to length you want your ribbon handle to be for your pomander, and hot glue to top of foam ball. If it's not perfect, don't worry because the flowers you use will cover everything. You can also add strips of ribbon at the bottom of pomander to hang down, but decide this before you glue all of your flowers because it will be harder to add them later.
*3. Glue flowers with hot glue directly to foam ball. You can start at the top where you will glue a flower, covering the end of ribbon handle that you made. You can make a pattern by alternating colors of flowers, gluing one row of white roses(example)and the next row glue red roses. The choice is yours.
Pomanders are very easy to make, and can be used as decorations for your wedding reception decor. Your bridesmaid can carry a pomander instead of a bridesmaid bouquet. Your flower girl can also carry a kissing ball, instead of a traditional flower girl basket. Or how about every other bridesmaid carry a arm bouquet and the other bridesmaids will carry a pomander. It's up to you. Pomanders can also take the place of pew bows. Have fun with it and be creative!
