How to Make a DIY Feather Pomander


Feather Pomanders

Making a feather pomander is a simple, fun, and budget friendly way to make a big statement.  Here are some simple directions:

First purchase the correct size Styrofoam ball.  The size is totally up to you but you'll need to keep in mind that the feathers increase the look of the size of the ball.  

You'll also need to get a glue gun.  Using a medium or low temp glue gun is really best.  The hot glue guns tend to melt the Styrofoam.

Next you'll need some decorative ribbon to attach or hang the pomander from whatever you are hanging it from.  They actually make beautiful and budget friendly centerpieces, aisle end pieces, replacements for bridesmaid's florals, for flower girl florals...the uses are almost unlimited.

You will be purchasing 1 to 1 1/2 feather boas for each medium to large pomander.

Begin by gluing the end of the boa to the ball, waiting for that part to dry.  When it is secure, you begin winding the boa around the ball approximately 1/2 inch from the last place you secured the boa.  Keep winding around the ball and as you wind you glue.  when you are finished simply make a small hole with a pencil and fold your ribbon in half.  You then glue the ribbon into the small hole, securing it to the ball.  

Voila!!!! You are FINISHED.
