I can’t give this one any photo or blog credit because it says the blog has been removed. It probably went inactive because the chick that wrote this tutorial died while making pomander balls.
These. Take. Forever.
They’re super cute and super easy and super sucky. They take like fourteen years to make if you want them to look right. And don’t just try to do it with bigger flowers, because that doesn’t look right, either. I wish I had taken a picture of my half done pomander ball. Because after fourteen hours and twelve thousand needle pokes to my fingers, I gave the hell up.
This one is great in concept, but doesn’t work too well if you have soup cans that aren’t Campell’s or don’t have full boxes ALL of the time. The problem is, the box isn’t sturdy enough to stack them unless all of the bottom boxes are COMPLETELY full. If not, they crumple on each other. You could reinforce them, I guess, but with all that damn work, you might as well just go out and buy one of these:
These suckers are $30 at Overstock.com. I was not paid for this endorsement. I’m just trying to save you some time and sanity.
This one is my favorite because it gets repinned LIKE CRAZY. DIY water beads from things you can find in your kitchen! What you’re pinning folks? The page to a HOAX. I laugh every time I see it. I’m going to laugh harder when I pin it from this page and people repin it. You should repin it, too. Because we’re hilarious. And if you’re here from a pin on Pinterest, hello and welcome.
Sorry you’re not going to be making cool water beads.
This is a lot like the Mountain Dew hoax I warned you about a while back. Don’t waste good Dew. I implore you.
But you know what I do love with all of my heart and can’t wait until Halloween to make? This bad boy:
In fact, I might just make one out of a watermelon and put it on Erin’s porch while I wait until pumpkins are in season.
Meanwhile, follow me on Pinterest. It’s worth it. I swear. Even more than following this damn blog, which if you aren’t, you should. It’s the right thing to do.
