Easy DIY Photo Holder with Wire and Rocks
I have another fun and easy photo DIY! It’s an easy DIY photo holder that costs only a few dollars to make and makes a great little gift or stocking stuffer. Best of all, you can make them from items around the house. It also is an easy kids craft to make for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Stop over for the tutorial and learn how to print Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr images straight from your smart phone.
Time: 10 Minutes
- Wire Cutters
- 16 Gauge Wire
- HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Sheets
Make Your Photo Holders
Gather your materials. Sixteen gauge wire can be found at any craft store or hardware store. Small rolls will cost about $5.00, while you can buy a large roll for around $10.00. It’s the perfect thickness to easily maneuver and is strong enough to hold your photos.
Wrap the wire around your rock three times.
Snip the end with wire cutters, and loop it around in a spiral shape to hold your photo. You can play around with the length.
Print Your Photos
Using your HP Social Media Snapshots App, print your favorite photos directly from your phone onto HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Sheets. The ones pictured in this article are from Instagram using the Hemingway template. In just a few quick taps you can have a copy of a special moment you can display in your DIY photo holder!
These make great stocking stuffers, thank you gifts, coach and teacher gifts, even Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts. Keep them for yourself too! Make several and group them on a shelf or mantel for a unique photo display.
Here’s a quick video on how to make these fun photo holders from rocks in your backyard and a few other supplies:
That’s it! So fun and easy… and cheap! You can give one to your friends, teachers, or loved ones along with your favorite printed pictures. You can also replace the rocks to fit the recipient or theme and use toy cars or other small toys, shells, you get the picture (Get it? Picture?)!
