Cute decorated wooden pegs

I love these wooden pegs below. I found them at Paperchase at the end of 2010 but have been checking their website since and apparently they stopped making them. It's a shame, but wait a second?!

They are so easy and cheap to make and you don't need to stick to a butterfly theme only.
So if you want to make them, here are some tips:

- You can buy a pack with 50 mini pegs from Ryman for £1.09.
- For the embellishments, the best shop I found was Windermere Craft, on Ebay. They have both assorted packs or themed ones. Click here for their collection. Prices will vary, but they are usually between £2 to £3 a pack of 12. I particularly love the dotty dogs!

- If you have a hot glue gun, you can use it to stick the embellishments to the pegs, but normal arts & crafts glue should do the job as well, especially if you're not worried about transporting or posting them.
- You can see that in the first picture there is a O + Z on the back of a peg. We did that because we used them on our wedding as place name holders and we told the guests to take them home as a souvenir of our day. For that, I used a woodburning pen I got from Amazon.

After the wedding, I use the remaining ones for different things, but my favourite is to hold my pictures!
