Here's a quick and easy way to dress up your refrigerator and give new life to some vintage forks, spoons, and knives. They'll add an upcycled touch to any metal surface—and they couldn't be easier to make. From the same crafty and eco-conscious lady who brought us the light fixture birdbath (and happens to be the author's mom), come these fun refrigerator trinkets.

What you'll need:
Vintage cutlery
Very strong magnets
Craft glue (hot glue or Gorilla Glue will work)

What to do:
Simply glue the magnets behind the widest part of the cutlery, let the glue dry, and then stick 'em to any piece of metal.
