There are 24 centerpieces. Which is 6 flowers per centerpiece. Sooo 144 total flowers. It took us 3 days with all 3 people working on a color.

As for how we made them there are tons of Kusudama tutorials. I dont remember which website I used. I just googled "How to make a Kusudama".

The paper is just cardstock you can get at any craft store. We bought pearls and rhinestones from the bead section and just glued them all together. There are white, hot pink, lt green, and dk green flowers. Her colors were lime green and hot pink and the store didn't have enough of the colors we needed so we put some white ones in there.

Thanks so much guys. Glad you like them. We're very proud that they turned out that well.
