Cutting board or craft plaques
Nails or screws
First, sort out what you have. I separated all my green handled pieces in large and small pieces, grouped all my wooden spoons together and then the odd pieces together like the mixer and tea tin.The big pieces are easy, most of them had a hanging hole already drilled in the handle. All I did was drill a hole in the rest of them very carefully.
The smaller pieces got a little trickier. To begin with, I didn’t have a cutting board, so I used bark edged board from the craft store as a replacement. I then had to get creative with the hanging. Look at each piece and find little nooks and crannies where you can put I a little nail. Also, I used brass nails so that if you see them it still looks pretty.
For example, for the pastry dough piece I did two nails that would fit right in the crook of the handle.
Now for the beater, I thought it was interesting enough to stand alone.
So I used two screws on another board that totally disappear when the beater is hung.
Now on to the wood spoons. These needed a little pop, so I painted a beveled edge craft board the same color as the kitchen cabinets. I then went around the edges with some sandpaper to antique it a little. The. It was just a matter of arranging the pieces until they looked good and affixing them with hot glue.
The only thing left at this point is my tea tin and strainer. I painted and antiques a craft board a similar blue to what I found in the label.
The strainer was a little tricky because it’s not flat. So the answer was to hot glue a little spool painted the same color as the base under the handle. This evened things out so all that was left was to put a tiny nail through a hole in the strainer.
For the actual tin, I attached two L brackets and just sat the tin on top. Since I didn’t want to damage either piece, I used hot glue on both.
Now find that box of grandmothers spoons and get busy – your walls await!
