Vegetable Grater Photo Holders as Centerpieces

     Just yesterday I showed you these old, somewhat rusty, vegetable graters that I got for a dime apiece at an estate sale.

     From the moment I saw them, I knew what I wanted to do with them. . .

 turn them into photo holders!
I just wiped them clean- leaving most the rust to add to the "vintage" look- and used a glue gun to adhdere a bull clip. (I used Tim Holtz's Hinge Clips- they were just the right shade of gunmetal.)
Then I tied a piece or ribbon to the handle, and voila!
Wouldn't these be cute as centerpieces for an anniversary party, wedding, or bridal shower? You could glue a bull clip to both the front and back sides and place an electric tealight inside.
They look good with recent photos or 

with older photos.

Since I don't have any type of party coming up, anniversary or otherwise, I placed mine in my livingroom on my piano.
What do you think?
     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14
