Today I am happy to share with you this rustic, quick & easy upcycle to display your favorite Instagram photos – all while saving a rusty old grate from a tragic dumpster demise! This particular grate is from an fire pit that is no longer. I just couldn’t part with it. Round objects have a hard time getting away from me since I love the challenge of using them to create unique repurposed wreaths.
Such as this repurposed hubcap wreath…
I digress. Back to the grate.
Here is the old thing. It has sat on my porch for months, begging for inspiration to strike me. Along came Susan.
Find something old, rusty and round, and you can do it too, within just a few minutes!
How to make a Rustic Photo Holder
Photos – Use your Instagram photos or other photos and apply a fun vintage filter!
I used ATC backgrounds I found at Hobby Lobby in a fun yellow, blue, vintage yet modern, geometric patterned, grungy style. you know that style, right?
The flowers are from Prima . I grabbed them at Hobby Lobby, but you can find them with my Amazon link too.
I used silver and white baker’s twine with the intention of clipping the photos with tiny cute clothespins. While digging through my stash I found the perfect Gator clips from 7 Gypsies. Their little hook fit perfectly over the rods in the grate.
I threw this piece together in under 10 minutes, and I will cherish it for years to come!
