Love your site! These dominoes are great. Did you wrap wire around beads to attach your bail? How did you attach them?

Hi Patzee! Thanks for the comments. For the ornaments, I wrapped the wire around the bail that I made myslef. It has a hole through the bail for the wire. The wrapped wire is just for decorative look. The bail is attached with E-6000 glue. For the pendants, I just drilled my holes with a small bit maded for drilling glass. I hope that answers your questions. Feel free to email me.

Could you please tell me what you use to fasten the clipart to the dominoes? Thanks

Deltadona,
It has been a long time since I did those but I believe I printed the graphic on regular paper. If you use inkjet printer, spray the graphic with Krylon clear matte spray to protect it and keep the ink from bleeding. Then I ran mine through my xyron machine to put adhesive on the back, then sprayed with a clear varnish. You can also glue it with modpodge then put a top coat over the graphic.
Here is a different way:
