Rusty Fence Picture Holder

Vintage photos, rhinestones, rust, jute webbing, and garden junk, oh my!  These are just a few of my favorite things.  I didn't have a specific project in mind when I spotted two sections of rusty garden fencing at a flea market last month, but the price was right and I had to have them.

They turned out to be perfect frames for displaying some of my favorite things.

Jute webbing to the rescue.  I can't believe how much mileage I've been able to get out of a $1 roll of webbing I found at a yard sale a couple of years ago.  You can see a few of my other projects here, here, and here.  The old blue webbing is a recent garage sale find.

A vintage sweater clip adds a little elegance to the top of the rusty fence.

These were so simple to make.  I cut each strip of jute webbing about three inches longer than the width of the fence.  Then I wrapped each end around the fence, applied a generous amount of Tacky glue, and clamped it with some large metal clips until it dried.  

Why stop at just one picture holder when I had two fence pieces?

 For this one, I used three pieces of red jute webbing and changed the way I positioned them.
All ready for hanging or for just sitting on a table propped up against the wall.
