DIY - Pomander Flower Balls

I got this fabulous idea from the Pizzazzerie blog.  I just adored it and knew immediately that I had to do it myself.

Here is what I started with

I decided to utilize these already on my mantel - here is the before look

And the after (a close up is at the top of this post)

My mantel so far with the flower balls and bunny garland.  It's a work in progress.  I still have a few more Spring items up my sleeve that I hope to add to my mantel over the coming weeks.

Thanks for reading! If you want to try these - I bought 5 pieces of glitter paper for mine and used almost 4.5 pieces.  About 1.5 pieces per ball.  I easily made these while watching TV, it was easy just time consuming.  I love the outcome and think it was well worth the time spent.

What a great mantle. I love that bunny garland. Did you cut those free hand? I can't imagine there being that big a punch.
