tissue paper pomander

Looking for an inexpensive way to decorate for your small wedding ceremony? Think DIY wedding pomanders.

Pomanders are a perfect way to dress up your wedding space. Whether you’re getting hitched in a church, in your own backyard, they look lovely lining the aisle! And you can make your own for super-cheap!

I discovered the above tissue paper pomander in the DIY Wedding section of Connecticut Weddings. Jessica, the crafty gal who made this, offers a great tutorial on how to make your own. The materials list only has four items:

Tissue Paper

Paper & Printable Media at Amazon.com)

Floral Wire

Styrofoam Ball


Amanda over at Ruffled also has a tutorial on tissue paper wedding pomanders. She made her own for her wedding – and they were gorgeous as you can see from the photo.

If you don’t have the time for DIY, why not hop on over to Etsy and rent some silk flower pomanders (shown below) from Psalm 117. Talk about a practical idea!
