For our next Teach a Cardinal we made beaded servers.
I love how they they all turned out so different to represent each person who made it. We had a UGA server, 4th of July server, fish server, to name a few. To make them, use approximately 3 feet of a 20 gauge wire and about 12 beads. Use pliers to coil the wire on one end. Thread the beads. Begin wrapping at the base of the server. At the other end, tuck under the wire or coil the end to secure.
