Old rakes can be given a second chance at a useful life as organizers. The garden tool hanger shown above is a handle-less rake repurposed to hang tools. I’m totally doing this on the side of my potting bench.
But wait! There’s more: rake heads can hang almost anything. Think necklaces or scarves. Maybe keys and purses by the front door. Or dog leashes and treat bags by the back door. Use the 90 degree head as a shelf for tea and hang tea cups off the spines. Or plants – a rake head would make a great “hook” for air plants in the bathroom.
What about towels or washcloths in the bathroom? Add a twine loop to your toothbrush handles (through a drilled hole or hot glued) and hang upside down.
Another great idea is to hang the rake handle on the outside of your door and use it as a base to entwine flowers and herbs from your gardens as the seasons change. Change the ribbon color with each season as well. Or tie harvested herbs on it with twine upside down to dry. I’m thinking mint tea here…
I’ve seen rake heads being used as wine glass holders – SUCH an attractive solution to small space wine glass storage. Going to steal this idea as well.
The possibilities are endless – whatever needs hanging (indoors or out) could use an old rake head to solve the problem. Enjoy –
