Beautiful Flower Centerpieces

Hi there! Today I will be showing you how to make these beautiful flower pomanders.  They make excellent centerpieces for your upcoming grad or birthday parties, weddings, or just for your home!

You will need the following supplies:

- 1 qty. 5" Styrofoam ball
- 2 or 3 sheets of scrapbook paper, any color (I like the look of the ones with pearl finish)
- Victoria Lynn White Pearl Corsage Pins
- a flower punch, any brand or style
- 1 qty. glass candlestick
- E6000 glue

First, use E6000 to glue the Styrofoam ball to the glass candlestick.

Next, punch out your flowers.  You will use 2-3 sheets depending on how big the flower is and how close together you place them.  Use your finger nails to gently curl up the petals.

Use the corsage pins to attach the flowers to the Styrofoam ball.  I layered 2 flowers together in order to better cover the Styrofoam.

Continue until you cover all the Styrofoam.

These also look great hung.  Use a needle and suji to string through the Styrofoam and make a loop or use E6000 to glue the suji down.  They look nice hung in a cluster at different lengths.

Until next time, happy crafting!
