A few years ago one of my blog readers sent me a huge box of old silverware that she had no clue what to do with. Old silverware is one of the best things to repurpose. You probably already have a drawer full of mismatched utensils. While you probably don’t want to bring it out for Christmas dinner, there’s no reason to throw it out either. There are a plethora of ideas out there for turning old and mismatched flatware into something functional or just plain fun. Take a look and find some inspiration from these ideas:
How about this gorgeous flatware handle bracelet from Redo It Yourself Inspirations?
Here’s a cute and simple way to update your fall decor. Check out Charlie, the Wood Slice Owl from House of Hawthornes.

I think one of my favorite ideas for repurposing silverware is this DIY lampshade made by Four Corners Design.
Do you have a drawer full of mismatched utensils that could be transformed into something awesome? If not, you could always make a trip to the dollar store and grab a few on the cheap. What are you waiting for?
