Quick and Easy Hanging Recipe Holder

6 Materials
3 Hours

Repurpose a fan blade into a simply easy and quick recipe holder.

Items needed:

1 - Clean/degreased 19 inch long fan blade (widest width - 6 inches)

1 - Wooden clothespin or small metal bulldog clip

1 small command hook that holds 1 pound weight

Jute or Twine for hanging

1 1/4 inch Laser Cut Letters Typewriter Font from Hobby Lobby (optional)

2 - beads for decoration (optional)

Decide on where you want the clothespin to be and glue it on. Mine in the picture is 12 inches from the bottom of the blade to the top of the clothespin.

Arrange the letters in a saying of your choosing that will fit on the fan blade and glue them down. I used pink star shaped acrylic beads to cover the holes since my letters didn't cover the holes.

Make a short hanger using jute/twine or even ribbon, but don't tighten the knot yet.

Attach a command hook that holds 1 pound to the top of your cabinet door. Let it sit for an hour before you hang your fan blade. Adjust your hanger to make sure the fan blade hangs where you want it too. Since my recipe holder is hanging on a cabinet door that is opened a lot, I added a small clear hook at the bottom to keep it from flying around.

All Done!! Now you are ready to cook or bake
