DIY Pomander

Here is a quick and easy way to make any room more festive for a holiday!

You will need:
Styrofoam ball
Large pins
Paper flowers with petals

There are several ways to make the paper flowers.  I used my Cri-cut machine.  You can also use any other die-cut machine or a flower-shaped paper-punch.  Gently push the petals of the flower up as shown in photo above...

and push a pin through the center of the flower.

Push the pinned flower into the Styrofoam ball, alternating colors.

Attach the ribbon to the ball with a pin and it is ready to be hung!

And there you have it!  A great way to make any celebration a little more colorful!
