Fork Placecard Holders~

Hello again, my friends! I got two fork placecard holders made up. That's all the forks I had. Well, I do have my set in the kitchen but...I don't think I want to use those! The first one is bird themed. Of course. :) Double click on photos if you want.

I made the little nest with 20 gauge wire and some egg shaped pearls. Then I found a little bird in my stash and I had to add him. Then I wrapped some more pearls around the handle. I secured the wire and nest with E6000 glue.

This next one I used a vintage earring and more wire and some silver beads. Usually I cut of the back of the earring but I felt like this one would have more support with it left on. Again, I used E6000 glue.

This is Mr. Pouty Pants! Aawww! Don't you feel sorry for him? I wouldn't let him play with my camera so he gave me this face! ;) I told him I was going to take his picture. He didn't care.

Well, what do you have planned for Father's Day? We won't be going anywhere as my hubby is still sick but I hope you enjoy your day.

Thanks for visiting dear friends and leaving comments. I love hearing from you!

Blessings and hugs,
