Knives to Plant Sticks!

A fun project I offered in my antique booth this past Christmas....simple, but oddly successful.  

At a recent estate sale I found a bundle of silver-plated knives.  They were heavy....perfectly tarnished....and totally un-use able for the dining table.  One bundle of 12....$2.  
How can you pass that up?
You can't.
Knives were purchased.

Then with some simple typing and gluing, words of pant-dom were hodge-podged on to the handles.  A rip of torn fabric tied at the handle....there you go, a plant stick.

Simple, yet it worked.  I'm beginning to get tired of the "word" thing on everything....but, sometimes it does seem perfect.  What do you think?
