Old Rake Cup Holder

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!

HI Mary

What a creative idea ..! Just looking at it, I think it would also be good to use for hanging other things ie, kitchen tools with holes, or even other items that have loops on ... &, if it's an old rake, it could be used for hanging other garden tools from ....LOVE the idea .... the mind boggles with ideas ...

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 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.
