I am doing a Christmas style basket of flowers in a few weeks and the customer has asked me to also include fir tree branches with the pointy quills...How do I achieve this?? Do I make the branches first and then attach the pointy things?How do I do this?

Any advice is welcomed!! thumbs_up.gif
any tutorials on youtube?

Maybe make the branch out of brown GP, and little green royal "needles". Kinda reminds me of the technique Colette Peters used for a cactus cake.

What this-mama-rocks said is what I would try.

it would be sooooooooooooo fragile though, I don't see how you could possibly arrange it and have it NOT break. I've looked online and I don't see anywhere that sells them, so i'm guessing it's just not something that will work well. She's totally against using fake or even real pine branches?

No...I think I will end up either piping a branch or using fake pieces..I don't see how I can do it either....She will be fine with it!
