These are very easy to make at a fraction of what it would cost to buy them at a store. They make great pew and reception decorations and a very cute for attendant of flower girls to carry. I used white silk roses for this one but any type of flower can be used but you’ll have to adjust the number of flowers needed depending on the size of the flower you pick. These instructions make one flower ball using large sized roses. I got all my supplies at the dollar store making this a very frugal craft! You can also change the size of the ribbon used but for my needs I went with a thin ribbon.

Materials Needed

2 stems of silk flowers with six roses on each ($1 per stem)
2” Styrofoam ball (pack of four for $1)
Glue sticks (pack of 20 for $1)
¼” ribbon ($1 for a 20 yard spool)
Glue gun


1. Remove flower heads from the stems.
2. Stick flower heads in the ball, evenly spaced to cover the entire ball, press down a bit on each to leave a small indent in the foam. This is your spacing and gluing guide.
3. After dry fitting the flowers put a dab of hot glue in each hole, and then press in the flower, hold it for a second or two till the glue sets up. Do this one flower at a time till the ball is covered.
4. Cut a 24” long piece of ribbon and form a loop and tie with a bow.
5. Attach the ribbon to the ball by parting the flowers and using a dab of hot glue, hold the ribbon down while it sets up

The finished product!

And that’s it! You’re finished a quick, easy and frugal craft! Total cost is $4, compare that to $10 or more for store bought flower balls. You can use a variety of flowers to match your theme and use any colour you want! I made twenty in a little less than an hour while watching The X Files.

You can use any type of flowers: daisies, rosebuds or anything else you like but flowers with open petals work best.
