You'll need:

Carnations (At least 50 bloomed carnations)
4.5" floral foam sphere
Round stubby glass vase
Sharp knife

Directions

  1. Soak your floral foam in water for a couple of hours.
  2. Trim carnation stems to one inch using sharp knife.
  3. Stuff carnations into sphere until full surface is covered.
