How to Make a Ball of Flowers

Below you will find instructions on how to make a ball of flowers using oasis. The balls can be used as your wedding reception table decorations they are quick and easy to make.


The ball of flowers can also be called a kissing ball or pomander. It is a very versatile piece that can be used several ways for a wedding.

The traditional way was to hang it from a chandelier over the reception table of the bridal party.

It can also be hung on the backs of chairs, on pew or aisle ends, over door knobs or in doorways.

The most common use for the pomander is as an alternative bouquet for the flower girl. It hangs from her wrist which leaves her hands free for other duties.

To make a kissing ball follow the instructions below but use a smaller oasis which has been covered in wire. Use hardy flowers but try not to use too many, because if it is too heavy it may be difficult for the flower girl to carry.

The oasis balls can be purchased already covered in netting, if you can not purchase this use some chicken wire to encase the ball.

The use of the netting will keep the ball from falling apart, provide additional support for the flowers, and give you a place to tie your ribbon (tie the ribbon to the chicken wire first before arranging the flowers).
