Hanging globes are pretty much as glamorous as you can get - great arrangements of flowers strung above you in a marquee or hall.
They are, however, pretty straightforward to make, if time consuming.
This afternoon I shall be making some globes for a wedding on Saturday, but I thought that I would post some step by step photos here of ones that I made last June.
You need an oasis ball - the largest size; cling film; a square of chicken wire and lots and lots of foliage.
Wrap the wet oasis in cling-film - you want to make it water-tight but not have too many layers in one place (or stems won't go in). The cling film keeps moisture in the oasis and stops the wire cutting in.
Don't worry what it looks like at this point - it will look awful - just check that its strong. Hang at an easy height to work at - ideally where you are going to hang it eventually as it saves having to move it.
Then just carry on - adding in a variety at a time so that you can ensure that the circle shape is kept neat. For this globe we used euphorbia, sweet rocket and cow parsley - we kept it very light and airy to compliment the marquee.
These also look wonderful with holly and ivy at Christmas.
