Milk strainer "vase"October 28th, 2009 in member junk
An inverted, rusty old milk strainer (with a nice brass strainer grid) gets new life as dried flower container. The grid makes a perfect sort of "frog" that nicely separates and spreads the flower stems--which in turn are gathered underneath in an upright terracotta pot. The two "funnels" combine to flare the wheat stalks that are all cut to the exact same length. Second picture shows what a new strainer looks like. I used brown Briwax to seal the rust and give it a bit of a sheen. Love that Briwax--the sniffing of which may be frying my brain.
