    So, I completed my first DIY project today. I thought it up before I found this webpage, but the DIY forum motivated me to go through with it. Once I had all the supplies, it went very quickly! My wedding theme is seaglass... and I decided to make seaglass placecard holders...

    So... I can't figure out how to post images... any help and I'll post them...

    Anyway lack of pics means I will describe. I bought seaglass (teal/blue) and attached craft circular paperclips... to make my place card holders. They really are adorable!

      go to a website like photobucket and upload and size (uploading them in medium size works well) your pictures. then use the IMG code and past that into the body of your post, and bam! pictures!

      can't wait to see!

                I bought the seaglass at world market (they sell them in large glass cylinders for 10 dollars). I bought a lot of seaglass from Michaels (for the tables) but the world market seaglass is the largest and is best for this project. I needed 60 pieces, and I got just enough out of one jar. I got the spiral clips from Ebay (for 2 dollars for 60!). And then I used a hot glue gun to attach. The key is to find the flatest edge or else they'll bend everyway but straight up!

                Good luck and borrow if interested!!

                  Those are fabulous!

                  I have been playing with the idea of making my own place card holders, but I just couldn't picture how to do them.
                  You've given me hope!
