Wire Wrapped Serving Utensils

46,034 Views
Over the holidays we were looking to give a few handmade presents, and I've always loved wire wrapped serving utensils. Utilizing supplies from JoAnn Crafts we whipped together these babies. The actual utensils came from Target, I adore their metallic collection of kitchen items these days!!
That's all you need folks. We bought the beads at JoAnn and the buttons came from our craft supply shop {Fleuriste Craft Supply}.
I love beautiful things :)
Simply thread your beads onto the wire and keep working, wrapping the wire around the utensil after every few beads.
I did one last swirl at the very end to hold it all together and VOILA! What a great and simple gift.

    Forgive me for appearing to be dense, but are these for actual use or for decoration only? It seems to me that all those baubles and food would not go well together. Or maybe I just need to hang out with less messy people? :)

      @Virginia R Not at all Virginia! I've actually used them a million times haha, although they're certainly lovely enough to be decorative I think. I don't put them through the dishwasher though because its rough on the wire, so I hand wash them and then let them dry on the counter before putting away. These are actually about a year old and they STILL look like that if you can believe it!
