Katie O. created ribbon pomanders:

 DIY Ribbon Pomander

What you’ll need:

  • 8 rolls of assorted ribbon (between 12-15 feet)
  • One bouquet of fake smaller flowers with removable heads (preferably)
  • 6 in. diameter Styrofoam ball
  • Pins
  • Toothpicks
  • Floral tape (optional)

 DIY Ribbon Pomander


Step 1: Cut all ribbon into about 4 inch strips (you will have MANY strips—not sure on a count)

Step 2: Form each strip of ribbon into the shape of a circle—overlapping the ends.

Step 3: Put the pin through the two overlapping ends (see picture)

Step 4: Stick these pins throughout the Styrofoam ball. For a tighter look (like my finished project) stick the ribbon closer together.

Step 5: Once the ball is as “full” as you like, remove the heads on the flowers.

Step 6: Put each flower on a toothpick. I used floral tape to secure the flower head on the toothpick

Step 7: Stick the toothpicks throughout the ribbon ball
