I made balls. Pomanders to be exact. They are slightly lopsided, because I had some things to learn. For instance, I needed a havier guage wire for the ribbon loop and Michael's is perhaps not the best place to buy supplies. The foam came in one shape only. Brick. I had to whittle it to ball shape, and it would have been much simpler (and prettier) to just start with a ball shape. However, for my first attempt, I would say that my balls aren't half bad. Also, I think next time, instead of grocery store flowers, I might attempt something fancier.
