Stack Top Sphere and Add Dowel

Insert dowel through top of middle sphere, then down into the bottom of the bottom sphere. Next, place the top sphere (4 inch) onto the exposed top edge of the dowel, securing it in place.

Fan Out Petals

Prior to covering spheres with carnations, use fingers to fan out petals until they appear full. This will ensure a more abundant look once all carnations are inserted in spheres.

Cover Bottom Sphere

Starting along the bottom edge of the bottom sphere, insert carnations into foam, leaving two inches of space between each flower, slightly overlapping petals until sphere is completely concealed.
