Here is a old rake I made into a cup holder. I just painted it, then tied on a few silk vines, put on a bow and there it is!

my first thought was 'what?', so I had to check out the picture. How creative! I just love it! This would also be great for in the barn or garden shed. Any more inventions you'd done? Lovely wall. Did you do that yourself too? Is that with the wooley?

What a great idea! I think i'll make one, paint it white,decorate with flowers and ribbon and hang my necklaces and chains on it in my bedroom and then figure out how to hang other things on the rest of the rake...thanks

Very nice use of it a lot. :) i could see cruising yard sales to get broken rakes on purpose to make these even to sell at crafts shows.

You do not need to throw away old gardening tools, this rake functions very well as a bird feeder.

With spring right around the corner, believe it or not, it will soon be time to check out your garden and lawn tools. If you have a broken rake, don't throw out either part.

Use an old rake head to hang wine glasses. Just hang the rake head on the wall and hook the stemware from the tines of the rake. Also you can use it in a closet for neck ties or belts.
