I love easy projects and this one definitely fits that category.
I have had three of these strainers in my studio closet for quite some time.
I came across them this morning as I was digging around for something else (which I never did find).
I took one of the strainers and bent the handle back to turn the strainer into a display stand.
That's all there is to it!
It makes a great stand for bracelets and earrings.
I'm planning on using this for my jewelry but it could also be used as a picture holder.
All you need is a photo and a magnet (my white magnet was originally an old clip earring).
I love this photo of my grandmother (in the middle) with two of her friends.
Or you could clip ephemera to the holder with small clothespins (I found these in the office supply area at Walmart) or paper clips.
In this example I thread a ribbon through the top of the strainer and added an old envelope and French advertisement card using the small clothespins.
And if I was a cook I would use this in the kitchen to hold a recipe card (in my case maybe I could hang the take out menu from our favorite restaurant).
I'm linking to some fun Friday parties:
Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra @ Common Ground
Thrifty Things Friday with Diann @ The Thrifty Groove
Have a wonderful weekend.
