Altered Vintage Grater Christmas Decor

Altered Grater

While walking through an antique store looking for a pair of ice skates ( no joy) I stumbled upon this old grater. Along with the ice skates I was actually looking for a box grater ( also no joy).  I had no idea what I was going to do with it (it’s not like I knew what I was going to do with the box grater either) but I knew I’d regret not getting it.

Dimensional Mod Podge Charms

The focal for this is actually the “25” charm which is what I’ll show you how to make.

For this you will need:
  • Dimensional Mod Podge ( I used silver glitter)
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Jewelry bezels (Michaels)
  • Scap of scrapbook paper
  • Punch (my 1” punch fit the bezels perfectly)
This is one of those easiest projects ever that people will think is a lot harder than it is. Let them. Also, you can use one of the pendants for actual jewelry!

Here’s how difficult this is:
  • Punch circles from paper
  • Adhere circle to bezel w/ Mod Podge Matte
  • Flood bezel with Dimensional Mod Podge, let dry
25 Charm

For the grater itself? Easy peasy. Wrap the grater with a scrap of dropcloth or fabric scrap. Make a pinwheel from more paper scraps. Add a star and the “25” charm. I added another charm I made from microscope slides. Finish with a strip of washi tape and a button.  Mine sits in my kitchen because it’s a grater and even though I alter them with all kinds of non-kitchen stuff….duh!

Bestill my vintage-loving heart! You did good, girl! Love how you mixed the vintage-inspired jewelry with that vintage grater. Did you ever find the skates? I just unearthed my thrift store pair today to put on my front porch with an old sled!
