DIYP-Beaded Utensils



Supplies:
  • Stainless steel serving utensil w/hole in the top
  • 20-gauge silver craft wire
  • various beads of choice.  I like glass beads.
  • Wire cutters or heavy duty kitchen scissors to cut wire
  • Jewelry pliers



Detailed instructions here

(I use my beaded spoon to stir my sweet tea. For Christmas, I'm giving my Mom and Mother-in-law the Life pitcher and this platter. 


I LOVE this line from Dayspring so much! It makes me happy to use it and to give it. And, it's on sale right now. The Life Collection is 15% off, just in time for holiday shopping!)

Here are some gift ideas I love (for kids):

Kid's Meals -such a creative idea
Handmade Ornaments-I love these!

P.S. Come back later today for the PERFECT gift idea from your kids-for that hard to buy for person (Yes, Mom, I'm talking about you-but don't come back and see what you might be getting for Christmas!) Oh, and I'm giving TWO of them away!

I was trying to find a way to contact you to tell you about a contest at Michael's. It's a handmade crafts contest. You are so creative and thought you might like to take a peek to see if you could win the weekly or grand prize http://www.michaelscontest.com/details

With office potlucks and church functions coming up, I went to Dollar Tree and got some of the $1 serving pieces to make these! What a great idea, and so quick and easy to do....

Thanks so much!

I love these so much you would not believe it!!!

I love it when I can use crafts I love in a different way to make gifts.

I make jewelery, and have lots of great beads which will be perfect for this.

If I make any, I promise to share them and link to you.

Thanks for the inspiration.
