Those are so cute! I love them! If I hadn’t already made my flower pomanders, I’d definitely try these. I think I might do one as a topiary for my kids’ table.. Kind of like this:

love, love, love this!!!  thank you!  I started my first one last night while watching The Bachelor and love this project!  I will say that it takes quite some time to make 1 ball, but very worth it in the end!  they look great!  my sister and fiance were quite impressed.  I will hang these on the chairs at our outside wedding and then bring them into the tent to decorate some of the chairs in there.

I loved this immediately when I saw this project. We are getting married out of town, my fiance and i originally discussed making fresh pomander balls and found out how expensive and time consuming it would be. I read through these and found I could bulk order the supplies online and get everything fairly inexpensive.  The only thing I did different was I took the 4″ pieces of ribbon and hot glued them in a circle, it expedites the process and only takes 1 pin to secure it to the pomander.

hello!  where did you find bulk ribbon online?  i know lacrafts.com has great deals on the styrofoam balls, but have had a hard time finding bulk ribbon?  Please let me know.  Thanks!

I ordered ribbon for my wedding on http://www.theribbonretreatwholesale.com/. If you sign up for their e-mail list, you’ll get notices when they are having sales and you can also order samples for cheap if you are really obsessed with getting the exactly perfect color like I was. 🙂

Thanks so much for the step by step!! I wanted my flower girl to have a pomander and I love this idea! Might even have some made for my brdesmaids instead of bouquets to cut down on cost. Money mouth Just hope mine turn out as nice as yours

Here is my finished ribbon pomander!  It definitely took a long time (about 7 hours while watching tv) and more ribbon than I thought but it turned out great!
