Day 9: Rusty Rake Head to Display Wine Glasses

Welcome to Day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas.

Today’s idea is a simple and creative way to add a little whimsy to the way you display and store wine glasses using a rusty old rake head.

With a lot of old rakes the wooden handles aren’t in the best shape and can pull off quite easily.  This rake head was already pretty rusty, which I think adds to the charm. However, I did clean it off before I used it.

Here is a closer view of the rake with its lovely rusty patina. It’s hangs quite nicely with just one nail.IMG_4098

Glasses are hung by their stems and I added a bit of greenery and some of my old vintage ornaments.

The Christmas themed wine glasses add a bit of charm too – don’t ya think?

If you don’t want to display wine glasses, here is another cute idea. Hang stockings instead.

I may have to find another rusty old rake head as I like this idea a lot it’s from Olde Tyme Marketplace

    I love this idea as never enough room for extra wine glasses. Great to show off other displays as well.
