I saw this vintage pie slicer at an estate sale in September. I wasn't even sure what it was at the time but I thought that it looked like a snowflake.
After I got the pie cutter home, I noticed the center was very sharp and reconsidered using it as a Christmas decoration. I shared the pie slicer on my facebook page, and my readers suggested that I use it for jewelry. I commented that I wanted to repurpose the pie slicer but it was so sharp I was afraid that the center was too dangerous. That's when a reader suggested I glue a knob on the sharp point. The knob idea was genius.
I painted a wooden drawer knob with white flat paint. I had a snowflake rubber stamp that I stamped with black ink onto white paper. Then I made a laser copy of the snowflake stamp, and used the Mod Podge image transfer method to put the image onto the knob.
I used Gorilla super glue to attach the knob to the pie slicer. Next, I tied a brown card stock "snow" tag onto my snowflake and hung it with jute twine.
I just love to repurpose vintage items (especially kitchen ware) as Christmas decorations. See my alternative Christmas trees here, and Christmas tree ornaments here.
