    I have just added this to my to make lists. Good thing im not getting married til 2015!
    You could always sell any excess ones you make!

    What else is on your "to make" list? :j

    OH suggested I sold excess ones actually, not a bad idea ;) Probably not much money to be made in it but they are so relaxing to make it could fund an innocent hobby :)

    Im making button holes with feathers and diamante sprays, place cards, which are birds that slot into wine glasses with a feather tail, im baking cookies i think for my favours, invitations, and niw these centre pieces and bridesmaids pom pom bouquets. I also wanted to make my own boquet qith fabric flowers and feathers, etc. Also some bunting for the reception. I want a winter wedding, so am thinking feathers, sparkle and i have an ice blue colour theme. Im really into vintage and shabby chic. Unfortunately i will have a really low budget so am frantically saving and want to start making after xmas in order to spread the cost.

    You'd be surprised how much you could make selling them i bet, but as the materials are so inexpensive, pretty much anything would be a profit. I told my OH about my planned makes, his response was "well it'll keep you quiet"!

    Right....I made some!! The first two I hated and almost gave up because I kept tearing them but my third one went well and then I found a way that worked and I was away! Here is a pic:

    Am really pleased with them, lots more to make but I have tissue paper coming out of my ears :rotfl:
