Items needed for June 2nd's program of decorated serving utensils.

People need to bring:
A utensil to wrap (some kind of serving utensil, these can be found at Linens and Things and Bed bath and Beyond). It's helpful if they have a hole at the top of the handle to get started.
Armature wire. This can be found at Michael's- usually with metal crafts. The product I saw that would be perfect is $2.99 for 8 feet, 1/16th of an inch wide.
Glass blobs and glass pony beads. These can be found at Michael's , Joanne's etc. I will bring my selection as backup in case people don't have any. You typically need 3-4 blobs and 8-10 beads for each utensil.
Soft clamp/jaw jewelry or wire pliers. These have plastic padded jaws so the wire doesn't cut or crimp. You might be able to fake these w/ small pliers padded w/ duct tape.
