I created this tutorial a while back for the Get Married website, but forgot to post it here - Tissue Paper Flower Pomanders!

These pomanders make for really nice centerpieces displayed under a glass cloche like I did here or you can glue a piece of ribbon to each pomander and make stunning hanging decorations!

That's it! Easy, right? It may seem a little time consuming, but if you just get your materials ready and sit in front of the telly crafting, you'll easily make a few of these in one sitting! ;)
