Use What You Got! Inspiring DIY Home and Garden Decor

The Idea: Cork Canape Knives

Use a mallet to break off existing decorative handle of an old appetizer knife. (Hint: Wrap the knife in a dishtowel to prevent small pieces from flying.) Remove any remaining pieces with pliers. Cut a small slit into a wine cork with a knife, and push the cleaned end of the appetizer knife into the cork until secure.

The Blogger: Yarnigras

Why It’s Fun: Take your dated spreaders and give them a festive upgrade using corks saved from special occasions.

Level of Difficulty: Easy. The hardest part may be finding your worn out knives to make over.
