What Do You Do With Vintage Jello Molds?

by Phyllis
Do you remember these? I do! My mother would make her jello in these and then unmold them on top of iceberg lettuce (that's all we got back then) and place a dollop of whip cream or mayo on top! Now, they are a bit outdated unless you're having a 50's party!
I found some fun ways to re-purpose these vintage jello molds. Perhaps you might like to try these ideas. They certainly will become a conversation piece!
A simple addition of styrofoam covered with artificial moss, makes a great base for artificial succulents. It adds such a nice touch of greenery with no watering needed!
Miniature gardens are very popular and this is really a "miniature garden"! Again, just add styrofoam and cover with artificial moss. It takes only a couple cute figures and a little greenery to make a cute accent for your home. For two more ideas, visit grandparentsplus.com! You'll find two easy ideas for Christmas.

    I have several, that are fish, a clam shell. Planning to line with plastic wrap & fill with concrete & use as garden art. I actually live on an Island, so beach themes are popular.

    All these ideas are great! I only had the small jello molds.
