I think this is beautiful. It could be used as a hanging ball or as topiary. Roses are one of my favorites and I am partial to yellow. I will be checking the hobby store fliers for sales on greenery/floral so that I can make this.

This is a wonderful idea. Ii want to use it at my bridesmaid party. I need peach colored roses and a bow. I am not hanging it from the ceiling. I am going to make it a topiary. I have a pot and the dowel. It will be very pretty.

I suppose it is not a requirement to use roses for the project. I love roses but I have a lot of leftover flowers that are just "floral" that I would love to use up and this would be the perfect project for that. Thanks for the heads up about the size of the finished ball. I will go for a smaller form.

I absolutely love this idea! I am always looking for things to hang from the ceiling when I decorate because that seems to be the most unused real estate you can have at a party. I love decorations like this that you can make and hang over guests head to liven up the event. I cannot wait to try it!

These rose bouquet ball are a great idea to use for a wedding shower,wedding ,baby shower or even just to decorate for a party. I would even use these as a centerpiece instead of hanging just do not put ribbon for hanging just add a bow to the front. So simple easy and you can even find the roses or other flowers of choice at the dollar store. Wish the tutorial was a little longer but over all this is an easy project.

My daughter is having a sweet sixteen party this year. I'm think of this as over the tables decorations in her favorite color. I'd prefer to keep the accent colors in pastels, but we may have to go with the red roses - they are her favorites.

What a gorgeous idea! Have given me inspiration for my wedding in august!

they look really great but could cost a pretty penny if you need to make or use as pewter decortions. Actually stumblef apon a site where they made organze pom-poms which look just as lovely and work out way much cheaper. I am in fact busy making them for my daugthers wedding.

Would be nice if you post a picture of this idea made with pom-poms.


I just looked up on EHow, it will take approx 2 dozen.

I, too, would like to know approximately how many dozen of roses for a 5" ball. I would like to buy them all at once so they would match in color

This project is really a gorgeous one. I made one of these several years ago from a Martha Stewart program I watched. I used the small paper roses with the wires in them (you can find them around bridal making area or craft area at stores). I just cut the wires off at the base. They are only the size of raspberry. I used a 5" ball also but with the small red roses. I LOVE mine and use it all the time. Christmas, Valentines, ect... GREAT project!!!

I love this project and my family adored it. Thanks

Very beautiful. Nice idea for a wedding. I would like to know apx how many roses it takes to make on a 4-5 inch ball. Thanks

Looks to be beautiful. Nice idea for mothers day as well.

This craft is beautiful and so simple to make and inexpensive. Thank you

This is the best craft project I have ever seen anywhere!!! Perfect for EVERYTHING and ANYTIME!!! FAST, EASY, FUN, and can be customized! U did a fabulous job!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Approximately how many sild roses did you need?

I love this! A friend made some similar for me out of silk hydrangeas, she made 3 different sizes and colors and I put them in a bright blue bowl in the Spring and put them on my coffee table.

I do not understand why you need the terra cotta flower pot or a cup for this 'hanging' project, unless the flower pot is used only while you are glueing the roses in to keep it from mashing the other roses. Am I missing something? This is a beautiful project even if you are using it in colors other than pink or red roses for Valentines. What about other flowers? What about using real flowers?
