DIY Rose Balls

This post is way overdue! For my sister’s wedding, we made rose balls for the reception hall. Initially, we thought about using fresh carnations b/c they are sturdy and would last the entire day. However, we had problems with finding foam balls for fresh flowers (at least in the quantity that we wanted!). A revision had to be made so we thought about using red silk roses instead.

    1. Hi- I really can’t remember b/c we made sooo many!! However, if I have to guess…and these red balls are the smaller ones, perhaps 30-40 roses. It also depends on how full your roses are. The bigger ones will take up more surface area so you’ll need less. Have fun making them! Best, Kellie


  1. What a great idea. I love how it turned out. I’ve been making tissue paper pom poms and I now will have to add rose balls in the mix. I think they will
    Compliment each other. Thanks for sharing.
