How To Make A Pomander (Kissing Ball)

Pomanders are great decor for ceiling, arch, aisle, and more!

I had this post on my old blog,, and it was quite popular.  So I thought I would post it here!

Here are the steps to create your own pomander:

  • 2 pieces of floral wire (approx. 12 in.)
  • Floral clippers / stem cutters
  • Scissors
  • 3" Oasis foam sphere (place in water, leave until it sinks)
  • 40 Carnations or similar sized flower (stems cut to 1")
  • Crystal garland (optional)

If using crystals, tassels, or other embellishment, thread onto your wire.

Wrap the wire around the soaked foam.  You can also use chicken wire.  (These now come with netting that makes this step unnecessary.)

Insert several flowers side-by-side to form a row. Offset the next row to fill in the gap. Floral glue may be added and is suggested if the ball will be carried.

Make a loop from coordinating ribbon.

Hang where desired!
