Rustic Shovel Handle Display Tray

Farm Feeder Tray/Shovel Handle Repurpose www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I think this rustic display tray has a lot of possibilities!
First came this lovely scalloped edge farm tray/feeder that I purchased at a garage sale with just the perfect amount and placement of rust.


Then I spotted this old shovel with just a bit of red paint and a great patina for $6 at Jackson's Icebox Antiques & Collectibles.

Next I cut the handle down with to about half it's length, and attached it with a screw from the bottom.  The washer keeps the handle from having any play.

It was that easy!

It will work for flower pots.  It will work great for fall vignettes next month as well, and maybe even at Christmas!

  6. I'd fill that up with some artificial snow and some rustic snowmen and leave it out all winter! It will be adorable with mini pumpkins and gourds, or apples.... I love it!

  14. Perfect combination of textures-rustic wood, rust and galvanized metal and that fluted tray! Think I may be digging around the garage for materials to imitate you! Thanks for sharing on the link party!
