  1. Lora,
    I’m sharing this cute idea on Saturday’s Dirt Road Adventures. Thanks for the inspiration. Everything is linked back to your blog.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Rachel! Will definitely pop over and check it out! Love the name; sounds right up my alley:)

  2. This is the cutest wall art ever! I will have to start collecting more little molds. I can hardly wait to get to an antique store! Pinned Merry Christmas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! I’ve always loved all those little molds, so I had to create something to enjoy them with!

  3. I’m swooning over your collection of vintage tart tins and molds. What you did with them for the holidays is so cute! I like that they were glued so there is still a possibility that they could be reused down the road. Pinned 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marie! My Grandma used to make cookies with them & they were my favorites, so it’s kind of fun to have decor made from them!

  4. I love these! The tree is just so unique how all the tarts fit together. I have a bag full but not enough to make anything yet!

  5. These are so fun! Great repurpose ~ thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

      Where can I purchase some of these??

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Elena, You can find vintage tart molds on etsy and ebay on-line, otherwise secondhand vintage, thrift and antique stores would hopefully have them.

  6. Love both of these Lora! So fun and what a great use for the tart tins and molds. I have a rather large collection myself and love repurposing them. It’s a bit of an obsession. Pinned!

  7. I love the fact that you glued them on; you could probably unglue them with a heat gun if you ever wanted to use them; they haven’t been changed structurally. I still have a collection of “copper” (most of them are aluminum) Jello molds and I love them and even occasionally used them; they are great for molding polenta!. Did make 2 Christmas decorations with 2 tart molds I found this year; don’t run across as many here in Maine.

    1. I am lucky I still find plenty of them around here, Kathy! It’s just so fun to enjoy them hanging on my wall everyday!

    It’s a disease, I picked up more of these this fall at a church sale. Had to rescue them.

  9. What a beautiful collection you have. You came up with a very creative way to display and enjoy them.

    1. Thanks, Peggy! It was a fun, easy project! I can enjoy them so much more than in a box now!

  10. Those are very pretty, Lora! I have used them in art before, but never creating a shape…like your wonderful tree! Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. Thanks, Linda! I’ve had this one in my head for so long; was great finally having it come to life!

    These are so pretty! I’ve been collecting molds, but wasn’t sure what I would do with them…there are so many options. I really like the tree shaped one you made. You found some shapes I have yet to find in my travels.

    1. Thanks, Dottie! I had the wreath idea first, but then the tree idea came so I could enjoy all the wonderful shapes together! It seems like there’s always more shapes to found:) It’s what makes the hunt fun, right?
