Lavender pomanders, a load of balls!

What to make with a bumper bag of lavender.?

 

Yes, of course sachets, but small polystyrene balls coated in pva glue then rolled in dried lavender are a start on this year’s lavender haul – thank you sister.

method:

push a skewer of wire through the ball then thread some florists wire through the hole and make a small loop at either end so you can hold the ball when it is sticky then thread ribbon through at the end.

Tip your lavender in a saucer and have a wet wipe to hand.Brush a light coat of glue all over the ball and when it is tacky sprinkle lavender all over, press the lavender in to the glue with your fingers so there is a good contact then let it sit in the saucer until dry(about 15 minutes with Anita’s tacky glue))

i dug out some sequins and pinned them in the spots where the glue failed but it didn’t matter that the covering wasn’t consistent once I tied ribbon through the top loop and then hung them from light fittings.

will go and but more balls and experiment with mod podge and other glues now, great little gifts that look lovely wrapped in cellophane but sorry sister, not postable
