39. DIY Wedding: Aisle Pomander Balls

Today I’ll be showing you the pretty pomander balls I used to line the aisles for our wedding ceremony.  This project is so simple, I almost feel guilty calling it a DIY.  Almost.

“DIY” Aisle Pomander Balls

Materials:

premade pomander balls – I bought mine from afloral.com, but they no longer carry this item. 😦
peacock feathers
ribbon
hot glue gun & glue sticks

Directions:

Step 1: Cut ribbon to desired length.  It’s going to be doubled, so if you’d like a 12″ drop length, cut a piece about 24″ long.

Step 2: If your pomanders already have an ugly sheer ribbon (like mine), rip those bad boys out.

Step 3: Using your hot glue gun, fasten your new, much prettier ribbon to the pomander.  Make sure to hide it underneath the flowers so everything stays nice and tidy.

Step 4: Trim the eye of a peacock feather, and attach to the base of the ribbon with hot glue.
