Old Insulator to Photo Holder

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  It seems as if our warm spring weather has left us in exchange for some cold and rainy days.  I am longing for a sixty degree day.....ahhh just a day that I could spray paint outside... Anyways....I recently bought a few of these vintage insulators from a local antique store.  I saw this re-purposed idea from the blog, http://postroadvintage.com, and loved it!
I took heavy duty (floral) wire and wrapped it around the insulators and then simply curled the ends up.  Seriously....such an easy project and quick.....gotta love that, right?  They would also be cute used as a recipe holder or maybe hold a simple quote.
Have a great day!
