by Carol
Alter a vintage cheese grater into a festive piece of kitchen Christmas decor with a few paper scraps and a focal ornament.
Altered Vintage Grater
I'm sure I'm not alone among the creative community in picking things up without having a clue what I'm going to do with them. Such was the case with this lovely old grater I found when actually looking for something else. The star of this project isn't the star , but the "25" charm in the middle of the star.
Use a jewelry bezel to make your focal charm
I used things I had on hand for this which included a 1 inch jewelry bezel. If you don't have these on hand, you can find them where jewelry supplies are sold. I got mine at Michaels. Other supplies you'll need:

Dimensional Mod Podge

Ribbon or Fabric Scrap

Washi Tape

Misc. Embellishments
You can see the rest of the instructions on my blog but this is definitely an easier than it looks project and a great way to create embellishments for other projects, cards etc!
