Antique Kitchen Tools for Spring

Antique Kitchen tools get a spring makeover! I was so excited to grab these antique kitchen tools this weekend, while we were shopping in Opelika, Al. I wasn’t sure what I’d do with them but I knew that I didn’t want to do anything with the patina of the paint or the aged wire so I came up with these simple decor ideas that I can change up seasonally!

  • Wrap the moss covered wire around the handle of one of the potato mashers. Love this stuff, it’s so realistic looking. It came in a roll, from Hobby Lobby.
  • Remove the birdhouse from the wire.
  • My birdhouse fit snug between the wired area of the maser.

Fill the tin measuring cup with flowers of your choice, even real ones! I found these in the floral department at Walmart. They have a really good selection!

Twist your wire around the handle. For the other end roll a tight circle so you can hold your recipe cards. You could even us it to hold photos!
