DIY POMANDERS

supplies i used:

styrofoam orbs ( i bought mine at michael's, but if you're doing alot, you can buy them for less on ebay about 12 5" balls for $20-$25 ) http://stores.ebay.com/LA-Crafts-Online

i pair of wire cutter-type scissors:

styrofoam glue:

flower:

Photobucket

cut the stem so there is about 1.5" left; cut at an angle so it's easier to "stab" the styrofoam:

Photobucket

dip the stem in the glue; find an empty spot on the styrofoam - and just insert the stem into the styrofoam:

Wow! You totally just inspired me to make some.  You make it look so easy, hopefully it will be for this non-crafty girl.

DEFINITELY saving these for future use.  I wasn't originally going to use pomanders, but those look amazing!  I'm going to have to find a way to incorporate them... :)
