When it comes to kissing balls, you can use any material to create the ball shape. It is nothing but a foam
ball underneath which is covered with different types of decorative material to create a poofy ball kind
of shape. You can use flowers, craft paper, fabric, and any other decorative items to make the ball. The
most popular type of kissing ball is made of flowers. If you have a forest or country themed wedding,
you can also use leaves or moss to make the pomander ball. When you use flowers to make the
pomander balls, it also has the added advantage of infusing the entire venue with a mild scent.
If you pick the right type of flowers, you can create a visually stunning decorative item. You can pick up
the base floral foam balls from any florist. Make sure that you get the balls that have a mesh covering
around the ball. This is required because you want to stick a lot of things into the ball and you don't
want to the foam to collapse. Also look for a sort of loop on top of the mesh wrapping. This loop is
where you can tie a string or a ribbon and hang the decoration from the ceiling.
First of all, you need to soak the foam ball in water. When the ball was completely so, you can start
sticking flowers into it. You can choose any type of flowers for making the kissing ball. But use flowers
that have a long stem. Roses and lilies are popular choices. Cut the stem in an angle and then insert the
flowers throughout the foam ball to create concentric circles. Make sure that the flowers are arranged
close together and the petals touch each other. When completely done, a pomander ball should look
like a profusion of flowers. This is the best type of decoration that any wedding venue can have.
