The Pizza Peel
I found it at a yard sale and the woman who sold it to me thought I was going to make pizza - such a silly idea!
I explained that I repurposed things and although I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, I'd think of something! As you can see, it's pretty large:
It needed a good cleaning. You could feel the oil in the wood. A little Dawn dish soap and some scrubbing helped, but didn't remove all of the oil.
I considered a few ideas:
-Just hang it on the wall.
-Add some sort of witty kitchen/pizza phrase.
-Wood-burn a design on it.
None of which 'jumped out at me'.
Then I remembered I had some grapevine wreaths that I had made last summer, so I dug one out along with a berry branch that was in the box with them.
A plan started to form in my mind, but first, I had to dismantle that berry branch.
The individual branches were wrapped around a central one so it was easy to take apart. I separated the gold berries from the white.
They were cut off and set aside (you never know when you might need them for another project!) Then the white branches were tucked-in to the grapevine wreath.
More was needed, so I opened the package of heart min-skewers from the dollar store.
They were cut-down a bit and also tucked into the wreath.
Next, a bow! So I made a quick one with some scraps that I had. I also opened up one of the bags of vintage jewelry and found a pretty earring.
Since it was a clip-on earring, I literally clipped in on the center string holding the bow together.
The bow was tied to the wreath and my project was finished!
Since nothing is glued to the wreath, I can change it up for each season.
Annnnnnnd, since the wreath is attached to the handle with a loop of fishing line, I can take it off and go with a whole new look anytime I want.
I like options, don't you?
