An ingenious solutuion....

For those who are reading my blog for the first time, you won't know that I'm getting married. One problem I've been trying to solve for a while is a stylish but relatively cheap way of displaying the table names/numbers for the wedding breakfast. Although in the big picture of things paying £3 per table to a clip of some sort wasn't a massive cost, by sheer stubborness, I felt it wrong to pay £36 for things which simply give some elevation to a table name. Therefore I thought and I researched as much as I could, until by chance a brilliant website called All About You had an idea for Mother's Day of homemade photo stand which is also perfect for my needs. So here is my attempt......

If you fancy having a go yourself, they are really simple. The instructions are as follows;

1) Cut 2 x 75cm lengths of 2mm-thick aluminium wire.
2) Bend the wire around a chunky knitting needle or pen to make a circle in the centre of each piece.
3) Put the pieces together and bend into a heart shape. Twist the wires together for about 4-5cm.
4) Trim the ends and then spread the ends out and curl each end around a knitting kneedle or pen to finsh the base off.
