Oven Grate Message Board

The other day I was at my local Goodwill (also a daily haunt of mine) and saw these oven grates.  I was needing something in the retail space I rented to display my business license and perhaps other postings.  So when I got home I pulled a couple rolls of ribbon (yes, black and white and chartreuse are my fave color combos, can you tell?)

I cut a couple strips of the ribbon.  I didn't measure, just kind of eyeballed it.

Then I put the ribbons together and tied the two grates together like this. 

I tied a couple more strips of ribbon at the top just to cutsify it a little. I started to add more, then I told myself to step.away.from.the.ribbon... 

You can either use those alligator clips or clothes pins to attach whatever you wish.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

  1. This looks like you could almost turn it into a bib apron should you wish. the ties and the shape is perfect for that.
