Here’s a project that just screams “budget wedding!”  Would you believe that this lotus-like pomander ball was made using plain ol’ wax paper?  Carolyn from Carolyn’s Homework created the feathery, translucent decoration using materials that, in summation, are far more than just the humble parts!  I bet it looks incredible with sunlight shining though it.  If you make more than one of these, try using different size foam balls and varied petal sizes for different effects.  [how to make a wax paper pomander ball]

Project estimate:

  • Styrofoam ball, $1
  • Wax paper, on hand or $1
  • String, on hand
  • Glue, on hand

Total:  $1 and up
