In fact, this holiday light display is so pretty you might just leave it up all year long...and you can! We'll talk more about creating floral light balls for every season a little bit later, but first, we'll show you how we made our Christmas themed flower ball!
Gather Your Supplies
**We chose zip ties because they're a more durable option for holding floral stems in place than floral wire, however if your display is temporary or you don't plan to move your light ball around too much, floral wire works great! Whichever attachment method you use, be careful to attach stems only to the metal light ball frame and avoid pinching the light wires.
How to Make A Floral Christmas Light Ball
A few notes before we begin.
We filled our Christmas light ball with florals and left very few gaps to see through the ball, however the method and density with which you choose to fill your light ball will vary depending on your personal taste. While layering the flowers on our light ball we could have easily stopped at any point and had a gorgeous display. That's the beauty of this project, the versatility is incredible! As noted in the supplies, we used a greenery filler to help fill out our ball, however if you wanted more light to shine through you could skip the filler and simply attach flower stems and accents to the exterior frame of the ball.
Additionally, if you prefer the uniform look of pomander balls, you could mimic this design by carefully arranging flowers of the same type together across your entire light ball. The steps below will take you through how we built our Christmas themed light ball and the types of floral stems we used.
