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

Im hoping to have bunches of either 3 or 5 on each pew well every second pew and havent decided how many rows yet ill see how i get on ive ages yet and dont think we're having flowers in the church so the more on the ends the better!!

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