Here's an easy way to make your Thanksgiving appetizers look extra special, and with the Turkey Lacers on sale, they're really inexpensive too.
Last year I got together various cut-glass plates & footed dishes and arranged various cheeses (such as blueberry stilton & dill havarti, etc), fruits (like pear quarters, berries, etc) & pretty crackers. Then I put grape clusters to hang off of the higher plates. All looked quite opulent (with little time) and I finished it off with these pretty appetizer picks.
There's really easy to make, with just some larger-sized beads (with larger-sized holes), some silver spacer beads, some gorilla glue and metal turkey lacers. All you do is close the round part on the metal, then put a tiny drop of glue at the "top", string some spacers and glass beads, then another drop of glue on the last spacer and let them dry upside down. (I put them in a block of styrofoam so they'd dry properly.) I made a few dozen, and was done in no time.
(*they'd also make a nice hostess gift!)
