Fabric (about a yard for 4″ styrofoam ball)
styrofoam ball (I’m using 4″ ones, 3″ ones & 2.5″ ones)
Hot glue gun
floral pins & Ribbon (If you want yours to hang)
Step one: Trace circles onto fabric. For my 4″ balls, I traced 4 inch circles. For my 3 inch balls, 3 inch circles
After cutting out the circles fold in half and put a dot of hot glue in the center of the folded part
Fold right side over onto glue- then put another dot of glue & fold left side over
Poke a hole into the stryrfoam ball, not too deep, and then put hot glue inside the hole. Take the pointed edge of your fabric and push it down into the hole.
I make a line all the way around the ball one way with the fabric and then start filling in the two empty sides.
Step 7: (If you want them to hang)
Find a good place to be the top of your pomander. Take a fabric pin and string it with any ribbon you’d like. Shove the fabric pin into the styrofoam ball and then tie a knot in the ribbon so it will stay attached to the fabric pin and not slip out.
Now you’re done!! These take a bit of time but they look super cool and they aren’t very difficult to make! Way easier for me then the tissue paper pomanders on the Martha Stewart website!
