Vintage Pie Cutter Slicer Snowflake Re-Purpose

October 22, 2015
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.
