Miniature chairs as centerpiece table attractionsBy Anton Barretto, Marissa Lopa

Styling your table starts with the little details. The unique and creative touches make your table setting spectacular.
Truly a conversation piece to delight your guests would be miniature hand-twirled chairs fashioned out of champagne bottle crowns using their wire attachment. These charming chairs can be spread around the table as accents to your centerpiece, or you can use them as place-card holders, or as cardholders to identify the dishes in your buffet.
Twist away the wire that forms a ring around the base of the attachment when taken out of the cork. This will leave you with the tin crown and the twisted wire still fastened around—this will serve as the seat and four legs of the miniature chair that you will eventually create.
Using the wire that has been removed, twirl one end to fasten and take it up forming the backrest, and the remaining end should be twirled around the other leg of the chair. You can be creative and make different backrests.
Step 1: Remove the ring of wire on the base so you can use it to form the backrest of the miniature chair.
Step 2: Using the ring of wire removed from the base, straighten up and twirl one end on the “leg” of the miniature chair.
Step 3: Bend the wire into any shape you want to form the backrest of the miniature chair.
Step 4: After shaping the backrest, twist the end of the wire on the other “leg” of the miniature chair.
