It’s a table setting with a twist. Skip the pen for this setting and grab some pipe cleaners instead. Twist a few pipe cleaners together to spell out the names of your guests. Go sparkly for a touch of glitz, or use fun colors. Think outside the card and use the names as gift tags or cake toppers–you could even stick a name in a bouquet of flowers as a centerpiece.

Step 2 Attach more pipe cleaners as you go along by twisting the ends together so the tails are wrapped around and flush with the wire.
