There are only a few weeks until Santa arrives! Which means there’s definitely still time to craft custom presents for family and friends. A fun gift is a collection of thrifted finds for your favourite cook. You can find vintage serving pieces, baking items or mixing spoons. Mix and match utensils into the perfect package with a potholder and oven mitt to wrap it all up. The best part? This gift is completely thrifted!
Drop by your local Salvation Army Thrift Store and look for an oven mitt. I found this matching pair – an oven mitt and potholder.
Collect your thrifted cooking utensils. You’ll want 5-8 items depending on their size as these will fit inside the oven mitt. Then wash all your thrifted finds.
Once your items are dry, you’re ready to “wrap” them. I used the potholder to wrap the utensils. Then a piece of scrap ribbon to hold them in place.
Now insert the potholder into the opening of the oven mitt. Next use ribbon to tie around the oven mitt and add your gift tag. Ta-da! Your thrifty gifty is ready to be gifted.
