Pomander Balls – Part 2

Posted on March 9, 2014 by  Erin   //   Comment

As I stated in my previous post, pomander balls are a creative way to add beauty and elegance to your big day.  If you are looking for a way to save on floral decorations, or simply a creative DIY project, you can make your own pomander balls out of paper flowers, silk flowers, or tissue paper.  Because of their ease and affordability, you can use a lot of them in big clusters to add a “wow” factor to your décor.
By making your own pomander balls, you have infinite flexibility of color and style, so you wont feel limited by your theme.  And just like pomander balls made of fresh flowers, they can be incorporated into any aspect of your décor.
