(You can find their directions by following the link above)
Let me start by saying that mine does not look like theirs... I followed the directions but sometimes you have to experiment and see that works for you. I find it's hard to explain in writing how you made something. Maybe I misinterpreted the instructions a little... Well I'm going to try my best to explain how I made my first pomander ball.
First I gathered my supplies:
-Crepe paper in the color of your choice. I ended up needing two rolls
-I used 3" round Styrofoam ball (I think it may have worked better with a 2" ball though)
-A glue gun
-Something to measure how long to cut the crepe paper. I used a tape measure.
So as you can already see, if I decide to do this again I'm going to make some changes.
First step is measure a piece of crepe paper about 2ft. Cut at 2ft, or rip like I did...
I'm proud of myself for trying my hand at my first DIY project! It may not have worked out the way I wanted but hey, there is room for improvement and you've got to start somewhere, right?
Have you done any DIY projects for your wedding that resulted in a semi-fail?
