DIY | Wood Block Photo Holder

I typically gift my mom a handcrafted card for Mother's Day, but this year I decided add on a photo holder so that she can reuse for displaying pictures all throughout the year. This is a sweet, inexpensive five-minute project that makes a great gift!

DIY Wood Block Photo Holder

(Difficulty: Easy)


(1) Wood block (1")
(2) Jewelry Pliers
(3) Wire (20 or 22 gauge)
(4) Alligator clip
(5) Acrylic paint
(6) Paint brush
(7) E-6000

What's ReadyCart?


1. Cut about 3 inches of wire and slip through the hole in your alligator clip. If your clip doesn't have a hole, use E-6000 to attach it.

2. Bend down the wire and wrap it around securely to ensure that the clip doesn't move around.

3.Paint your block however you wish! My mom's favorite color is purple so I opted to keep it simple.

4. Make a coil at the other end of your wire using jewelry pliers. Bend this at a 90 degree angle.

5. Dab some glue in the center of your cube and set your wire. Let dry.

Include a favorite photo or a sweet little message and you're all set!
