Pottery Barn Knock Off {Place Card Holder}

In between projects I saw this on the Pottery Barn site and just had to have it!

 How cute are these?! But at that price 
I thought I could save me some Moola if I made them myself.
So I did!
I think these would be great as table markers at a wedding::hint,hint::
So I set out to get some supplies:

First I remembered seeing this somewhere:
So I went to Michael's and sure enough. Score!
These four cuties were $2.49 for the pack.
So affordable.
Next I had to buy some type of birdie, or embellishment for the top. 
I couldn't find any ceramic ones but I found these:

 also from Michael's 

Then I went over to Home Depot and got me some white porcelain tiles at 13 cents a piece. Can you say super affordable?

Then I got my trusty can of Rustoleum spray paint in Heirloom White and gave the easels a few coats.

After they dried I simply glued the tile to the easel and glued the birdy to the top. I used super glue but you can use any glue that will adhere to glass, 6000, etc.

Now I can write on them with my dry erase marker and use them over and over!

While I was at Michael's, I also found these cute little frames:

They were not so cheap at $2.00 a piece, but I thought they'd look cute as place markers too. 

So my grand total spent for these 4 Pottery Barn knockoffs is
$6.50 since I already had the paint and glue.
Savings: $13 not including shipping saved.

My mind is on a roll. I am working on some other projects to Spring-ify my dining room while my seat cushions for the vintage sofa project.
Since the sun's been shining here in the DFW area, I'm super stoked to bring color into our living space once again.

Are you as excited for spring as I am?
