Remember back a few months ago when I told you how much I love vintage salt and pepper shakers and I showed how I made ornaments out of them? Well, I could have a tree covered with these ornaments and still have salt shakers left over so I used them for another repurposed vintage project — salt shaker photo holders!

I used the same annealed wire that I used for the ornaments. It would be easiest to show you how I did it but until I get a video made take a look at this one my friend, Jennifer, made. Hers are a little different shape. I just wrapped my wire around a Sharpie pen to shape it.
I wrapped the wire around the top of the glass and then screwed the top on so the wire stays on tight.
Then I just rummaged through my stash and found old rhinestone buttons, earrings, and other findings and glued them on with E6000.
I also use these for displaying earrings in my flea market displays. (Which is why you see the shamrock earrings in the photos.)
Thanks for reading my post! I’ve got to go make some more things out of the rest of my salt shakers. Leave me a comment if you have any ideas for me!
‘Til the next project,
