Crepe Paper Flower Pomanders

By:

When you're looking for wedding reception centerpiece ideas, consider making these crepe paper flower pomanders! These pomanders are a very thrifty alternative to real flowers.

See this project and more on the blog!

 

Materials:

  • Foam balls (8" would work best for my vases) OR wadded up newspaper
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Streamers (200 feet per pomander)
  • Glue dots

Instructions:

  1. Start by making the rosettes. First I cut my streamers into strips about 3-4 feet long. I didn't measure them first, so of course none of the rosettes are uniform. I think that makes them look more realistic though.


     
  2. Start by rolling the end of the streamer a few times.

  3. Then you'll continue wrapping the rest of the strip around your roll in a spiral, except that you'll twist the strip as you go. I found that it works best to twist it often and randomly, and not too tightly.


     
  4. When you're finished wrapping and twisting, secure the end of the strip to the rosette using a glue dot or a dab of hot glue. Your rosette should look like this:





     
  5. Once you've made enough rosettes (for me it was when I finished off the entire roll of streamers), glue them to your ball using a hot glue gun. Most pomander tutorials will advise that you use a foam ball as your base. However, since I need to make 20 of these and I need a fairly large ball, I really couldn't justify the expense. It would have cost me about $275 just for the foam balls! Instead, I rolled up a few sheets of newspaper and taped them into a spherical shape and called that my ball. Then I glued the rosettes to my newspaper balls.






     
  6. Once you have the entire ball covered in rosettes, set it on the top of your vase, and you're done!
