Since Xmas is right around the corner I really like this idea for gifts for those hard to buy for people.
The Dollar Tree (and other stores like that) sell nifty serving pieces (like big forks or serving spoons) and you just string beads (glass ones are much nicer than plastic) onto wire (gold or silver) and wrap those suckers!

This is one that I made to use with my cake platter which now sports crystals from the holes. Wink  I've used it a couple times and just hand wash it.

This is a great idea! I'm curious how you attached the wire to the utensil, though - does it stay put if you wrap the wire well, or did you fasten it some other way?

Hey, thanks!  If yall end up making some I'd love to see your pictures!

Savasana,  the utensils that I bought from the dollar store already had a hole at the handle so I started through there and twisted to make sure it was secure.  Some other folks that have made these have twisted a "Curly-q" end and then glued that down with E6000, but I'm a little leary of glue on something that's going to be around food...  If you just twist really tight it will stay put I believe...

Have fun making these!
