Some More Ridiculously Easy Photo Holders

These photo holders are THRIFTY and very easy to do. If you haven't seen my tutorial on wire wrapping go here.

Then look at the simple, everyday, around-the-house things you can use...




hose nozzles... and door knobs...



and...a couple of different kinds of cabinet latches and locks....



and, I bet you have a couple of ideas of your own you'd like to share, right?

  11. You are such an inspiration.. I had never before thought of old door knobs, nozzles..etc, being used as parts of picture holders. I'm now viewing everything with a new outlook. Thank you for the inspiration and your tutorials.

  18. Hey Joan- We did not go to Elkhorn this weekend- Homecoming weekend for my daughter and I did not want to miss it...and we just did a big show at the Junk Bonanza. Normally we do really well there and we recommend setting up on Saturday as early as possible to get all the dealer business...we will be at Kane next weekend though. Hope to see you there!

  34. I love your wire pic holders. I made one too, but forgot to take a pic. It is an old brass hose end sprayer, but the broad one with a hundred holes in it. I used too light a wire, but had too as thicker would not go into holes.


    works ok, but yours are much better. =0)
