An old bamboo or metal garden rake can be repurposed in interesting ways. This guide contains uses for old garden rakes.
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!

This is awesome !!! Thank you for posting everyone needs a simple,cheap,beautiful ideas for their home ! This one is a great one
Great idea! :)
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 material....like 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.
