Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece With Vintage Kitchenware

Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece

Last week, my husband and I needed to go to another town to pick up a car cooler for his semi-truck.

While there, he took me to an antique store where I spotted two antique sifters and a loaf pan in the same booth.

They were very reasonably priced, so I bought all four.

Both of the sifters are Bromwell’s.

But the sifter with the red wooden handle is my favorite.

I love all vintage loaf pans, but my favorites have the folded ends.

First, I transformed the loaf pan.  Here’s how.

All of my Christmas picks came from Walmart.

At 97¢ each, you can’t beat the price.

I used two.

The rubber spatula also came from there in a 2-pack.

The plastic candy canes were in a pack of 6 from Dollar Tree.

How to make a Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece with Vintage Kitchenware

Step 1:  Fill Containers.

Fill the containers with insulating foam halfway.  The foam expands while drying.

Step 2:  Make a Mini Sign

Choose one of the 12 designs on the Warm Wishes transfer to make the sign on a mini tag.

Step 3:  Attach Sign to Craft Sticks on the Back

To do this, apply hot glue on the stick and more around it.

This makes it very secure and sturdy.

Step 4: Clip Stems,

Clip apart the picks so they’ll be ready for the next step.

Step 5:  Add Picks.

Carefully insert the sign, picks, and spatula into the foam where you want them, then remove each.

Then use a glue pot to put glue on each item and reinsert so they won’t come loose.

Make sure to choose one pick for the back that will cover the craft sticks.

Step 6:  Ribbon or Bows and a Jingle Bell

In retrospect, I wish I would have dry brushed some light brown paint over the top of the foam to make it look like a real loaf of bread, but I didn’t think of it until after the picks were glued in place.

But I love it anyway!

Later in another post, I’ll show what I do with the sifters.
