Suggestions Please...




I need your crafty help today. My niece's Bat Mitzvah is in June and I am making the centerpieces for the tables. Each table will have a clip that has pictures of Emily at different ages of her life. It is a large clothes pin, painted white and decorated on both sides. I then used wire and attached photos and the table number to it. I put clay at the bottom of the clip. My issue is does it look strange and can anyone think of another way to attach the photos and wire. I would appreciate any thoughts and ideas. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

that is a great idea, the only thing I would say is do the number and pics front and back so no matter where some on is they get to enjoy the view.

Oh so sweet!! What a clever and gorgeous idea! I am a firm believer in less is more and really like this the way it is :) Classic and elegant. BUT, I also know what it is to be "stuck" and wished I'd had another view, lol, so if it were a small change to make I would probably add ribbons since it's for a girl {Emily, right? :)} I would wrap them around the wire not so much to cover it up, but like a candy cane stripe - you'd see alternating ribbon and wire - sublte, but still there. Or simply tie a small bow under/over the pictures :) It's a beautiful project!

Does it want a base, I wonder??

I don't think it looks strange at all! Excellent idea for centerpieces.

Love it, such a great idea and how fun. I was thinking the same as Kelly wrap the wire with either ribbon or streamer type paper. Great job, they will love them.
