Paris Postmark Bottle Holder

I've been a bit under the weather this week.  It's been a germ-fest over here and I have not been immune.  Still, I worked up some energy last night to give a French-y makeover to this metal bottle holder I got from The Christmas Tree Shoppes last year.
I bought the great Paris postmark from Etsy (graphique.etsy.com).  I simply printed it out on regular white paper and distressed the edges.  I mod podged an image to each side, giving them both a coat on top to seal the image.
Then I added some random rhinestones.  And done!  I was hoping to add some mason jars inside, but much to my dismay, they did not fit.  Instead I added some French script candles and I think they look perfect.  I'm trying to figure out what to add to the other slots but for now, I'm enjoying this quick makeover.

It's really nice..it would be perfect (in season) for condiment bottles on an outdoor table..maybe some dried flowers? I like what you did with it...

Oh no! I hope it wasn't anything that laid you flat out on your back. This is very cute and I love the shade of blue. Feel better!
