Eye-Catching Flower Wedding Centerpiece

Milena Kukurekovic


Flower balls are easy and beautiful decoration for your wedding venue! Having DIY wedding centerpieces will make your day so special, show off your personal style, and guests will appreciate the work that you’ve put into them. 


Spring blooms are a must when it comes to seasonal wedding decor, but traditional floral arrangements can get expensive. Hanging flower balls are a fun alternative - however, depending on your venue, it can be difficult to hang them. We took the style of the hanging flower ball and added a little Smarty-ness to it! To create this unique centerpiece, we turned our Leafware mini bowls upside down, transforming them into pedestals. Add these DIY flower balls and you have the perfect spring and summer wedding centerpiece!


Not only are these flower balls an affordable option, but the centerpieces also works for both indoor and outdoor venues. They're low on the table, which allows for easier conversation between guests, and they're easy to transport and set up. And if you're digging a garden theme, pair these wedding centerpieces with our garden-inspired wedding ideas. Follow along for an easy and unique flower ball centerpiece tutorial! Get creative and enjoy the fun!

What you need:

  • Leafware mini bowls
  • styrofoam floral balls (we used 3 inch and 6-inch foam balls)
  • hydrangea silk flowers (we used 2-3 flowers for each centerpiece)



Step 1: Hot glue styrofoam floral ball to the bottom of a Leafware mini bowl and hold in place until firm.

Step 2: Cut hydrangeas into bunches.

Steps 3-4: Cut individual hydrangea flowers leaving only the plastic base of the flower.

Step 5: Use the plastic base of the flower to secure the flower into the foam ball.

Step 6: Repeat until foam ball is completely covered.


This DIY is all complete. Perfect floral centerpiece for a wedding, baby shower, or any other special occasion. Stunning to the look and impact, these glam flower centerpieces will instantly add pizzazz and glamour to your venue. I hope you’re able to make it! I can’t wait to share all the pictures afterward!
