Diy: Beautiful Cutlery Hanging Rack

Taking something old and turning it into a beautiful new object is undeniably satisfying. If you are looking for new home décor on a budget, then try this unique take on a hanging rack. This upcycling idea turns long forgotten forks and spoons into a beautiful, yet practical focal point for any home.

For this project you will need:

  • A micro fibre cloth
  • Electric drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Goggles and protective gloves
  • A sturdy mounting hook
  • Wire
  • Sturdy wire cutters
  • Pretty metal forks and spoons
  • A wooden plank with a beautiful grain or finish
  • Screws
  • A tea towel
  1. To start, we need to get the cutlery looking sparkly, apply a drop of cleaning product to a damp micro fibre cloth and wipe over each item of cutlery thoroughly. Rinse and dry with a tea towel.
  2. Here comes the tricky part. Slowly bend the ends of the cutlery upwards, into a hook shape. To make it slightly easier, try heating the cutlery before bending.
  3. Now time to put on your gloves and protective goggles. Mark corresponding points on each piece of cutlery and drill holes, making sure to protect any surfaces.
  4. Using the screwdriver, screw each fork and spoon onto your board, making sure space in between each one is even.
  5. Lastly, fix a mounting cook to the centre of the back of the board so you can hang your new rack up.
