It took almost 100 little paper flowers to make this hydrangea pomander. I was actually inspired to create these by my wedding. We largely had to pay for our wedding ourselves, so we tried to be frugal in our planning. For the wedding, these carnation pomanders lined the aisle and hung from garden hooks. For the reception, they doubled as centerpieces for the tables and we hung them from banana hooks. I was pretty proud of this idea to save money on the flowers. It helped that by choosing an outdoor venue, the scenery was so pretty that we didn’t need to add much floral décor! 🙂 This is a pic of the pomanders at our wedding on the Charleston Harbor almost 7 years ago.
What You’ll Need for this Project:
- Foam Floral Ball
- Hot Glue Gun
- Scrapbook Paper
- Silhouette CAMEO
- Hydrangea Paper Flower Shape
- Hook Screw
- Bakers Twine or Ribbon
- Banana Hook (to hang the pomander from)
As I mentioned, it took almost 100 of these little guys to cover the whole ball. I set the ball on a coffee mug while I worked on gluing on the flower.
I hot glued the screw hook into the ball so I’d have an easy way to hang it from the banana hook. As the ball got fuller, I hung it from the banana hook to put on the last few flower pieces.
Pretty simple really, albeit a bit time consuming!
I took some pics of it on my front porch table but ended up settling on adding it to my current Spring Mantel.
