Vintage Bulb Planter Turned Photo Holder

I picked up a vintage metal bulb planter at a local garage sale last summer.  I wanted to give it a quick makeover and a new purpose: a photo holder.
I didn't think to take a before picture - boo!  This is a side view so you can see that it is indeed a bulb planter.
I started by giving it a few coats of white spray paint.  Once the paint was dry, I used my hot glue gun to add some grungy clips to each side of the tool.
I also added some vintage French book paper to the bottom.
I love that I can hang photos from either side and it's skinny enough to fit on teeny tiny shelves or other spaces.

Oh my gosh! What a fun and creative transformation of a bulb planter! I love the Frenchy touch you added. You even could use it on the kitchen counter to hold a recipe card!

I'm in love with any clip of any kind.
