- Paint brush
- Gold leaf size

Using your punches, cut out an equal number of small and medium flowers.
Lay a small flower over a medium flower, and pierce them with a pin. Push the pin into your polystyrene sphere.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the whole sphere is covered in overlapping flowers. Cluster them closely together for the best effect.
Cut a short length of ribbon, fold it in half, and pin the ends to your pomander so that you have a loop to hang it from.
Apply a thin layer of gold leaf size to your baubles in the area that you wish to cover with leaf. Leave this until it is just slightly tacky.
Apply gold leaf, rubbing gently with cloth to ensure it adheres. Remove any unwanted flakes.
