5 creative ways to use your ORDNING utensil holder

This sturdy, stainless steel piece is a definite must-have for any kitchen. But like so many of our other products, we just knew that there had to be other creative ways to put it to use. We asked a few of our coworkers to chime in and the results were awesome!

1. ORDNING? It’s for the birds. Place a few sticks through it, fill it with birdseed, and hang it from a branch with twine. Your local avian population will thank you.

2. Feeling crafty? HR assitant Li Ahlsén can relate. She came up with the clever idea to create a knitting station. Just group a few utensil stands in different sizes (spray-painting them is optional but fun), tie them together using some yarn and add a handle from an old paint can. Thread each ball of yarn through a hole to keep them tidy, and devote one holder

3. Sure, shelves are great and all. But we like to mix things up a bit. Project leader Carin Hamrin and customs administrator Petra Rosic Melberg had a similar idea to spray-paint a few utensil holders and screw them tightly to the wall. It’s a great way to keep your entrance nice and organised.

4. Stash your hardware in a DIY gardening tool belt. Spray-paint ORDNING in a matte colour and use a cable tie to create a loop for your belt. So handy.

5. Get ready for a highly organised sugar rush. Just place a ball of yarn under your utensil holder and poke in some lollipops or other treats on sticks. If you’re throwing a party, group a few holders together for a bigger impact.
