Have A Ball

Val Rasmussen's easy steps to creating a sphere of mums:

Soak a 4-inch oasis ball in water until saturated (about 30 minutes).

After cutting the flower stems to a short length, create a band of buds around the sphere to create a line to guide your work from. Prepare pomander 8 hours prior to display.

Once the sphere is completely covered, stage on top of a candlestick. Remove sphere every other day and water thoroughly before placing it back on the candlestick.
