    I think it looks real from a distance. Plus, it’s the LOOK you want =]

    I think it looks great too. Maybe you want to add a weight at the bottom, since I’m sure the shells are a lot heavier than the tissue paper. Without the added weight, the tissue paper strands might blow around like crazy.

    I really like them. I’ve been contemplating something similar but I might not have enough time and it might not be important enough in the end.

    Definitely keep on truckin’- we did something similar with fake flowers strung on fishing line for our arch.  It took a while, but it turned out to be one of my favorite details of our wedding!
