crochet table decorations

have dinner guests and want to pretty up your table? if you can crochet, here’s one quick hack from marion.

she writes, “for last year’s silvester-party i needed a bit more sparkle on my table, we had more people than usual, so i had to bring out my long table cloth that i hardly ever use… and of course i had no fitting table decoration.

so i picked two galej from my shelf, picked beads and a thin silvery wire (more filament than wire, probably) and an equally thin crochet hook…. and crocheted these covers for the glasses.

they were rather quickly done (one evening watching TV each), didn’t cost anything because i had everything at hand and they are removable. my guests liked it.”

    These are beautiful! Unfortunately I don’t have the skills necessary to make them myself, but if I saw them for sale in a store or on a site like Etsy, I’d buy them if they were reasonably priced.

    Very nice work.
