Entry #7: DIY Ribbon Pomanders
Katie O. created ribbon pomanders:
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
- Floral tape (optional)
Step 1: Cut all ribbon into about 4 inch strips (you will have MANY stripsâ€”not sure on a count)
Step 2: Form each strip of ribbon into the shape of a circleâ€”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 â€œfullâ€ 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
