Modern technology is a blessing and a curse. Blessing: digital cameras. Curse: never printing all the awesome pictures we take. So, what to do with all the photos we never display? Display them in cool wire holders!
Another fun gift I made for the holidays were twisted wire photo holders kinda like this but better, because I made it! Here’s a quick and dirty tutorial on how I did it and what I used.
Getting started with all my supplies: Wire, wire cutters, vases, styrofoam, glue stick (to wrap wire around) and decorative rocks. hot glue gun not pictured.
I used a slightly heavier gauge wire than I’ve seen in some of these kinda things. Available at your local home mega store. This whole roll was about $6
So, I ditched the glue stick and found the marker was a better wire wrapping mold.
I put some foam in the vase and inserted my twisted wire. I applied hot glue then added my decorative rocks.
Add photos and Ta-Dah!
I also used flower pots, small wooden boxes, salt shakers and shot glasses as my holders. They all turned out super cute. Just one more fun way to up-cycle.

Great idea! My mind is churning up tons of variations. Thanks for the inspiration!
I also thought this would be fun as a napkin holder. Put each person’s picture so cloth napkins can be reused. Or as place settings for a dinner party.
Good job Lula! Margie
