Flower Pomanders Made with Wiffle Balls
Making flower pomanders with wiffle balls is something I’ve done several times in the past few years. They can be hung, placed on a stand, put in a centerpiece, or even used with a handle for a wedding bouquet. Did you know they’re also called flower “kissing balls”… isn’t that a funny name?
They are SO EASY to make and the flower possibilities are endless. Today I combined flowers and added in leaves. You’re never going to belive how simple this decoration is…
I hung these flowers outside on shepard’s hooks yesterday. You can find shepard’s hooks here on Amazon or at a nursery (Hobby Lobby has them too).
I think this beautiful hanging sunflower pomander will last all through summer and fall! I also made a white rose pomander
This tropical hibiscus and hydrangea wiffle ball pomander is my favorite! It’s so tropical looking!
Each of these took about 10 minutes to make. I mean, really, it doesn’t get much easier than that!
Watch how they are made!
- Plastic wiffle Balls (found here)
- Hot glue
- Jute string (found here) or ribbon
- Artificial flowers (any kind you like!)
- Cut a long piece of twine and loop it through the ball like this.
- Remove the flowers from their stems.
Just give them a little tug and they’ll come right off!
- Put hot glue on the holes in the ball like this:
- Place the flower in the hole on the glue and hold it in place for a few moments until it dries. I love hot glue because it dries so quickly!
- Continue step 3-4 until all of the holes are filled OR until you’ve achieved the look you’re hoping for! Some flowers take up more space than others, so depending on what kind of flowers you use, you might not need to fill every hole. It’s up to you!
- Tie the string on a shepard’s hook.
Aren’t they so pretty?!
If you love this project, you’re going to LOVE this watering can with twinkling lights. Both of these projects will make any yard look gorgeous!
