well the first few take awhile cos your just startin out but once you make a few you can do them infront of the telly, I love doing that kind of thing so guess it depends on yourself, if you're patient or not, when it comes to making the final ones for the wedding il prob cut all the leaves at the same time then make them and paint them all together, that way il get a system going and it'll be quicker

I'm sure they will be gorgeous! The bunches of three look stunning. You're giving me ideas.

Thanks girls,
I really want to put as much of a personal touch into our wedding, both of us are creative so we're trying to make things where we can
