DIY Wire Holder for Photos and Cards


Make this crafty little solution for displaying your holiday cards or photos at home. This could also be made into a custom display for escort cards at a wedding!

All you need is some wire, pliers, snips, and something cylindrical to wrap the wire around– this can vary depending on the size you want. Be sure to use something heavy for the base. Wood is perfect since it is easy to drill into and you can use fun found object like spools, old blocks, or even nice chunk of fallen tree with bark still intact.


Once you make some of these you will be seeing all sorts of possibilities to create picture holders out of everyday objects.  They are not only decorative but could make great gifts too.
