Wedding DIY: Make Your Own Flower Pomander

So I’m getting married! The actual proposal happened a couple of months ago now and ever since we have been extremely busy looking at venues, colour schemes, churches and trying to save as much money as possible!

Part of my money saving drive is making the table centrepieces for our reception myself. The idea came about after I spent many long hours browsing Pinterest and coming across these flower pomanders. I think done right they can look really effective, so i set out trying to get myself the tools to do the job! Each flower ball cost me about Β£15 and I’ll run through how I made one below!

Pins with Diamante Heads

First things first, you need to cut the stems on the roses. I cut all of the stems in half so It was easier for me when I was pushing them into the sponge foam ball.

As I was pushing the flowers into the ball I also went round and inserted the diamond pin heads where I felt appropriate, I usually stuck them in the middle of groups of 4 flowers.

And that’s all folks! It’s so simple it’s unreal – I did leave a little gap at the base of the ball where I didn’t insert any flowers so that it could rest on a candlestick and didn’t go rolling off.

I don’t know how I’ll place these on the tables yet. I’ve seen lots of options, from candlesticks to vases filled with crystals.

Let me know if you’re getting married and planning on doing a bit of DIY yourself!

  • Wow Sophie you're one talented girl! I adore these! I think it's so nice and personal too. I'm getting married in a few weeks (eek) and as I'm getting married in Iceland have to bring my centerpieces in a suitcase, so opted for twigs, pinecones etc. If I was getting married here though I would love something like this!
