Most people would throw away the metal part of the rake that was left, but not this girl. I knew I could find some use for it, so I tucked it away in my bin of project pieces and it’s new use would be discovered at another time.
1 year later while cleaning out my basement, I came across that rake again. I brought it upstairs, set it on the table and looked at it for a while- thinking about what I could do with it. I love the texture of it and the shape of it, so I thought it would look neat hanging on the wall.
There is sat, proudly hanging on the wall next to my hutch, full of my favorite glass pieces, and wine glasses.
I could use the old rake as a vintage/rustic/country style wine glass holder.
With these simple steps below, you can do the same!

PROJECT SUPPLIES: Sad & broken old rake, wine glasses, & don’t forget the wine!
How to turn an old metal rake into a rustic wine glass holder:
1.) Find an old rake, I have seen hand fulls of these at most antique stores. [If you can’t find one, pick up a new metal hand rake from any store for under $5.00 snap or saw off the handle, and sand the metal down a bit to give it an aged look, or even spray paint a cool color.]2.) If you want to add a little something extra to your rake, cut some twine or ribbon and simply wrap it around the top-where it will hang from the wall.
3.) Hang your rake on your wall, on the side of a cupboard, or wherever your heart desires & add wine glasses.
