DIY | Vintage Book Pomander

I made these pomanders for Corynne’s bridal shower a few weeks ago and everyone fell in love with them! The bride liked them so much she is borrowing them for her wedding! Since having them completed weeks before the bridal shower we got to enjoy them around our house for a bit and we plan to put them in the office once they are safely returned.  Warning – this takes a bit of time, hot glue, and patience, but it was well worth it!

  1. Hey Viv – I am pretty sure each one took about 5-6 hours and about 10 hot glue gun burns! If you decide to make, remember the smaller the styrofoam ball the less work!!!! XOXO

  4. Hi,

    I was going to e-mail you this, but I couldn’t find an e-mail address anywhere. I’m writing a blog post about DIY pomanders with links to tutorials. I was wondering if I could use one of your photos if I credit you and link back to this page?


    • Hi Jen –
      I am happy that you love them so much! Thank you so much for asking and yes, of course you can use an image for your tutorial! I can’t wait to see it!!

  6. I’m wondering how you got them to look pinkish? My colors for my wedding are black and champagne and I would love to make them to be this color. Is it just the lighting on the picture or are they really a hue of pink?

    • Yes, if you are seeing any pinkish, it is most definitely just the picture. However, I wanted them to be creamy white, not bright (i.e. new book white), so when selecting books from the used book store & Salvation Army, I looked for books with very old looking pages and disregarded any books with new looking pages.
