Who knew making these pomanders could be so easy? Our resident noncrafter, Barrie Gillies, proves that even a woman who doesn't know the right end of a glue stick can create gorgeous balls of fluff.

1) Tissue-cutting: Each pomander requires 80 five-by-seven-inch rectangles of tissue paper—40 white, 40 pewter. Make a cardboard template and use it to cut through multiple pieces of tissue paper at once. I made 20 stacks of four sheets each, alternating pewter and white. Each stack became one flower; each pomander required 20 flowers.
