Wedding Flower Balls

What Is the Ideal Size of the Flower Ball

Do you want some unique decorations for your special day? Are you planning to make something simple and inexpensive? After that, let's get to the ideal tutorial for creating pomander balls for your wedding.

Fresh flowers make pomander balls, also known as kissing balls. Its name comes from the French phrase "apple of amber," which translates to "a ball of perfume."

Traditionally, an orange fruit with cloves inserted was used as a pomander ball, sometimes called a kissing ball. It prevented illnesses and unpleasant odors at weddings. They were also utilized for aromatherapy in homes back in the day.

Nowadays, pomanders, also called flower balls, are a must-have for weddings and are made with artificial flowers. Would you like to give your guests or bridesmaids pomander flower balls as a wedding favor? Are you trying to get inspiration and guidance on how to make one? By following our guide, learn all there is to know about pomander flower balls.

What Size of a Pomander Ball Is Suitable for a Flower Girl?

The purpose of a flower ball determines its ideal size. A gigantic ball around 7" or 8" in diameter would work well if you decorate it. Fewer flower balls will be needed for your event's decoration. Smiling pomander balls in the 4-5" size might be a bit pricey because you'll need many of them to decorate the event.

You don't need to purchase a large flower ball if you're using it for the flower girl; a smaller one, about 4" to 5", will serve just fine. You can also give the smaller pomander flower balls as freebies to the bridesmaids or bridal parties. A smaller one would be the wiser option in both situations.

It also depends on whether you purchase it or make it yourself. Making flower balls at home can be expensive as they need a styrofoam ball, glue gun, and fake flowers. Remember that the finished ball will be twice as large as the original Styrofoam piece, so make your purchase appropriately.

How to Make the Flower Ball for a Flower Girl

Check out these simple instructions to build a pomander flowery ball for the flower girl. First, gather the supplies listed below:

  1. Styrofoam ball (4’’-5’’)
  2. Glue gun
  3. Artificial flowers(carnations, sola wood flowers, etc.)
  4. Glue gun
  5. Baby's breath (optional)
  6. Floral U wire
  7. Lace or ribbon


  1. Make sure you use a glue gun to secure the floral U wire that you insert through the hole in the top of the Styrofoam ball. You'll need that loop to put the ribbon or lace through it, so let it dry for a bit.
  2. One by one, affix imitation flowers to the styrofoam ball by applying glue to the back of each blossom. To ensure that there is no remaining white space, properly attach them.
  3. You can use a glue gun to fill the spaces with dried baby breath (golden, champagne, silver, etc.). Once it has dried, your flower ball is prepared.
