A Roundup Of Vintage Craft Ideas

Spread the love

If you like to collect vintage items, you may find that some are great to display as is and others are more fun to re-purpose into another usable or decorative item.

I love to shop for anything vintage and have found that some work especially great in craft projects.  Old wooden hangers make great jewelry hangers or photo holders like this one.

I have also seen them used simply as towel holders, like this idea from Junk Camp, when they are hung upside down:

Or, here is another take on a jewelry hanger by Household 6 Diva:

I also like to collect those old wooden industrial bobbins.  They are great for making candle holders or small vases like this one:

Another fun use for these bobbins is in making pedestals.  I love this pedestal cake stand from Reclaimed Crafts:

They also make a great place to wind up and store your twine in a decorative way:

A more unusual item that I like to collect and use in craft projects is vintage hose nozzles.  I use these for pedestal dishes and photo holders:

Vintage suitcases are something that I would like to start collecting.  I have some ideas for storage that I would like to use some of these for.  However, the best idea that I have seen using a vintage suitcase has to be the one from Camille Styles:

A cat bed is such a cute idea and it’s even perched up a little higher which cats love!

And, I just love this painted white suitcase turned table by Shabby, Chic and Charming:

Finally, vintage skeleton keys are a favorite item to collect.

They are great to display in creative ways.  One popular way to do this is to place a few in a picture frame like this one by Centsational Girl:

I have also used one in this Valentine craft:
