We are taking the ordinary carnation out for a wedding and trying to make it shine like Cinderella!
If we do the magic right, carnations can be quite beautiful. We usually suggest carnations for flower girl decor or hanging balls from the ceiling or a tree.
- 3 bunches of carnation spray
- 1 oasis foam ball
- 1 wire
- 1 pair of clipers
- 1 piece of ribbon 12″ long
- 1 pieces of woody stem 0 .5″
After soaking the oasis ball in water until it changes to a deeper hue of green, cut a piece of stem to 0.5″ long.
Step 2: Tie a piece of wire onto the stem securely
Step 3: String the wire through the center of the foam ball and make a secure knot
Step 4: String the ribbon through the wire knot and make a secure ribbon knot
Step 5: Start adding carnation until the whole sphere is fill with carnation evenly.
Voila! Here’s the cute pomander ball! You can also mix some mini roses to make the design even more interesting!
