I bought most of my supplies at Dollar General Stores. I used the off white rose from DG. They come about 7 to a bunch for $1. I used 6 bunches for 1 pomander. Michael’s has 4″ green styrofoam balls, a 2 pack is around $5. The ribbon came from the dollar store as well, and 2 rolls will do about 10 pomanders. You’ll need hot glue too. ( $2). Total cost= around $8. I also added some filler flowers from Michael’s, but they are optional I suppose.
The best trick for spacing them out is to start with “north pole” “south pole” points and use something to mark them (I used leftover stem from my flowers). Then I evenly spaced them out on the “corners” of the balls (north, south, east and west), then fill in. I also saved money on the amount of flowers by gluing some of the petals from the flowers that were side by side together to fill in some of the smaller petals.
Pictures of the process to follow.
