Tin Pie Pan Makeover

Another Monday Mini Makeover

Tin pie plate repurposed into wall art

I found this pie plate at a goodwill for $1 and loved the scalloped edging and the fact that it is a little rusty and well used. This one was going home with me and I already had an idea of what I wanted to do with it.

I was hoping to find a more vibrant vintage pie image, but to no avail. Then I stumbled across a picture of a vintage ceramic pie plate with a strawberry pie recipe on it and decided to print a copy of the picture and cut out the center of it. I preceded to coat the back of the image with mod podge and center it on the bottom of the pie plate. After smoothing out all of the air bubbles and letting it dry for about 15  minutes I coated the front of the image with mod podge to seal it. It just so happened that the recipe image portion of the picture fit the center of the pie pan perfectly!
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?

There was already a small hole on the edge of the pie pan, so I cut a strip of cream colored duck cloth fabric and tied a metal ring to the pie pan to hang it with and made a simple bow with the remaining fabric.

A quick, easy and inexpensive way to recycle a pie plate.

I'm already on the hunt for another one. I'm thinking chalkboard paint on the center of the next one. What do you think?

'til next time,

  2. I picked up a pan like this a couple of weeks ago with the plans to make it into a chalkboard, but I LOVE this image, or at least doing something like it too! Looks like more trips to the SA for pans, they're starting to know me by name now. LOL!

    Thanks for following me & I'm returning the favor and following you back!
