First Frugal Friday ~ Fun With Funnels

Thought I would join in today for my first "Frugal Friday" posting  I've been playing around with vintage tin funnels today......take a look!.

I saw this 'idea' in the Junk Market Magazine, but I put my own 'twist' to it.  I used a zinc bottle top as the base.  I figured out an easy way to attach them.  I put an old soda pop cap in the funnel and drilled the screw though it and secured with this wing nut thingy!

Didn't want to stop there, so I punched the word "FLOWERS:" on a scrap piece of tin and attached it to the side!

Here, I simply used the funnel as a holder for herb signs that I made from laminate samples and wire!

Well, thanks for stopping  by....I would love to hear your comments.  Be sure to check out all the other Fun Frugal Friday Participants at The Shabby Nest.

  4. Great ideas, Susie. These old funnels are great to play around with and I love your twist on them.

  5. Susie, love the funnels. I've been finding a few here and there too. I meant to tell you that the light bulbs in a bowl seems to have been in one of my pics, but you'll have to go through several of my posts to find it, probably was during the Tx antique show pics. Have a great week, T
