      This project was a "i'll figure it out as i go" kind of project. I'll have to take pictures when I do the rest. Just waiting for the feeling to come back to my fingers! LOL! J/K.. I'll make sure to post a tutorial..

          I was thinking about doing a shell bouquet... I don't think i have enough time to try and figure it out on my own, i have a list of other DIY projects to do.. I searched on etsy.com for shell bouquet's.. pretty reasonable prices for what it is. But, i may just stick to real touch flowers.

              I love how personal they are! Love the colors and uniqueness. Are they matching your bouquet in any way?

                  They look fantastic! You did a great job on them :) If shell bouquets are not feasible, think about doing a real touch bouquet with shell accents

                      I want to say they ended up being about less than $5 each.. It's hard to calculate because i had extra stuff laying around that i didn't have to buy for this project. The feathers were really cheap, a package of approx 25 feathers was $2.00. I got them from Wal-Mart. The ribbon I had for my other DIY wedding projects. The bag of shells I purchased from Michael's with a 40% off coupon=$8 total for shells. The brooch pins was $2.49 for a total of 25. And glue for my hot glue gun.. LOTS AND LOTS OF GLUE. I'll try and finish up the rest of them soon.
