Today's post is specifically about the pomanders that were used as decoration on the cake table.
They were so easy and fun to make! Probably around 15 minutes each and cost $8 a pop! I think they look just like carnation balls. Except carnation balls are $60 on the low end and very messy.
As for how to make these babies, you'll need:
- a styrofoam ball
- cupcake liners
We used cute yellow round head pins but they didn't end up showing at all so I'd recommend the cheapest flat head pins you can find.
Step One: Stick the pin through the centre of the cupcake liner.
Step Two: Scrunch the liner
Step Three: Repeat 123,456,789 times
Step Four: Stick each pin into the styrofoam ball
Step Five: Repeat 123,456,789 times (we giggled that it resembled a clown wig at this point!)
Step Six: No step six -- you're done!! Give yourself a pat on the back.
Tons of people commented on how cute they were! I completely agree and think they are super fun for a kids' party or baby/bridal shower. And most importantly, cheap and easy to make! My sister-in-law and I made these assembly-line style with me pinning and scrunching the cupcake liner while she stuck them in.
I think they were oh-so-charming on the cake/dessert table.
