So i have been slaving away at making paper crepe pomanders for the aisle decor. My question is how many should I made?? Enough just for the first pews to make those for immediate family. The first couple rows and then every other row? The first couple rows and then every third row??
I THINK there are about 30 pews on each side…
As well I made one as a trial in blue, but I am planning on making them white since I can’t find my colours. The trial one came out pretty decent. Do you think I could spray paint it????

I vote every other pew period.

I voted for every third pew just to save you some time and such. It’s the same idea as every other, but less crafting for you. 🙂

I feel the same as joy2011 – every other pew. It spaces it out and keeps it from being too cluttered. If you wanted to designate the family pews with something different (like ribbon or flowers or something), that would be pretty.

Thanks guys! They are definitely time consuming (which is why I am doing them 13 months in advance when I am off from work!)
I figure if I leave them in the closet on hangers they shouldn’t really fade.

I say every other pew…it will be balanced and you will only need to make 30 (eek!) I attempted this diy project just to see how it would turn out…It took forever to make 2 so I totally understand not wanting to do 60!!

Yeah, they’re a pain to make. Personally, I think every other pew would look really great and very pulled-together. One suggestion is to sort of block off the section of the church behind where your guests will actually sit with a screen or something like that–then you’d only need to go back that far…

I did mine every 3rd pew and it worked fine (so, pom – skip 2, then pom).

I would not recommend trying to spray paint the trial pomander. If you want to use it somewhere, you could add a bit of your wedding color in the form of ribbon, or a floral pick and use it in the bathroom or at the bar.

I am leaning towards every third pew…it just took me 6 hours to make 320 or so of the individual roses!
