KISSING BALLS (POMANDER BALLS)

Looking for something a bit different than a basket for your Flower Girl(s)?  How about a "kissing ball/pomander ball" instead?

I made these for an upcoming summer wedding....aren't they just adorable?
They begin with a styrofoam ball, so they're nice and lightweight.....easy for little ones to carry down the aisle.

For this particular wedding I used burlap, lace and an embroidered tulle for my base fabrics; I tossed in some silk flowers and strands of pearls and you have a great alternative to the traditional flower girl basket.  I can see all sorts of possibilities based upon the theme of the wedding and the color palette.

Since one of the girls is several years older than the other two, I chose to make hers a bit larger.
Which meant starting with a larger styrofoam ball.

You can see in the picture to the right, I even rolled some roses with the burlap and lace trim I used for the handle.

I literally couldn't stop once I got started.

I think I might have to make some other varieties and put them in the Shea Marie Etsy shop.
