Turn A Rake Into A Wine Glass Holder

I love shabby chic and rustic decor! I especially enjoy decorating with discarded and thrifted items. Today I’m going to show you how to turn an old rake head into an attractive, functional wine glass holder.

Step one: Remove the rake head from the handle. I purchased mine as is from an antique shop, but if you have an old rake you will need to unscrew or cut off the rake head. Clean the rake head well with soap and water.

Step two: Use a soft brush to randomly brush on the gold glaze. Brush a bit of glaze on one section of the rake head, then wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. This way you’ll get bits of shine mixed in with the aged patina to create a rustic yet chic appearance.

Step three: Spray the rake head with a clear sealant to protect the gold glazed finish and to keep the gold highlights from flaking off.

Step four: Cut a piece of burlap to fit the handle of the rake head.

Tip: When cutting burlap, place tape on the part that will be cut. This helps keep the edges of the fabric cleaner and helps keep your work surface neater.

Step five: Use hot glue to attach the burlap to the handle. Glue the edges on the top of the handle down, and cover the end by gluing a decorative brooch on top. (You could also use rhinestones, buttons, or cork instead!)

Use a wall anchor and screw to hang your decorative rake head to the wall. Hang wine glasses upside down from the rake head. You can fit at least 4 wine glasses, or five champagne glasses as I did here. What an eye catching way to display your glassware, don’t you think?
