Holiday DIY With Old Kitchen Hardware

1 Material
Got any old kitchen hardware lying around?
I have this old jar of assorted hardware on my shelf in my workshop.

I keep it just in case.  (Why you ask?)

Because I’m a “you never know” type of crafter.
I had picked up a bag of old kitchen hardware at a garage sale a couple years ago for fifty cents and used it on a few projects and even made a couple of ornaments.

While it may be too late for you to make this year…

it’s an idea that you can put away on the shelf, so to speak, for next year.
Here’s how I made my ornament…

After disassembling the hardware, I spray painted the base plate cream. What a difference spray paint makes.
I added silver around the edge using a Silver Leaf Paint Pen.
I used the small hole at the top of the hardware plate to string red and white twine. I embellished it with a glitter berry cut from a glitter berry sprig (see previous picture) wrapped around a small craft pine stem to form a small swag. I glued the pine swag and small red and white bow to the hardware with Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry.
I painted a small wood snowflake, found at the craft store, with silver acrylic paint and added the “let it snow” sticker.
I added a small red pearl to cover the bottom hole in the hardware and glued the snowflake on top.
A quick and easy upcycled ornament for the Christmas Tree.
