How to Make a Romantic Pomander with Red and Pink Roses

Moderate

Time: 10 to 15 minutes 

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Soak the floral foam sphere in fresh clean water by adding to a bowl for a few seconds or misting (make sure you do not over soak the foam). 
  2. Put the ball on a support (pot or cylinder) to ensure you have your hands free for the designing. 

  3. Attach the ribbon to the sphere by wiring a loop of ribbon on sufficiently long wires that will protude through the base of the sphere. 

  4. Glue gun the top of the sphere where the ribbon enters the sphere. Place 3cm plant stick at the base of the sphere and bend the wire over the sticks to anchor them and glue gun into position. 

  5. Now you start adding the flowers. Cut the stems of the roses and flowers short approx. 3 to 4cm, so you can push them easily into the foam. Divide the little rose buds of the spray roses over the ball to keep the design well-balanced. 

  6. Make sure you keep a few flowers to cover the base of the pomander sphere. You can lift the sphere by lifting the loop to stick them in.
