    I LOOOVE THEM. Is there anyway to find them cheap, already done? Maybe a local craft fair, or someone on Etsy? That looks like a LOT of gluing, that I don’t think I’d ever be able to commit to…I’d do half of one, and say forget it haha….but, if youhave the patience…I’d do it, if you can’t find them cheap somewhere! So gorgeous.

    Very pretty. Finish your other projects first and if you have time make these. Maybe it will encourage you to speed up the process 🙂

    Ooooh, those are gorgeous! I’d say assess how much time you’ll need to finish your other projects and add the time it’ll take for these. You don’t want a bunch of half-done or sloppily finished stuff if you run out of time. They are absolutely gorgeous, so if you can do them and it fits your theme I say go for it!

    OK I voted for your first option, but without knowing what your other projects are I can’t really say. I would save this for last if you really want them and have enough time. Don’t stress yourself out or become sleep deprived! Even though I voted for the first one, really think about if you have the time. I find that I always underestimate the amount of time it takes me to make things.

    Might be pretty easy to make if you cover the ball in glue and roll it around in the pearls. Or maybe even easier to find pins that have pearl heads.

    I’d do them if possible but at some point you just need to relax so you’re not exhausted for the wedding itself! Then again, you can rest on your honeymoon depending on where you’re going!
