DIY Photo Door Knob Holders

I love a good DIY, but there are only so many of them I can do around here before I drive my poor husband crazy. If you know him in real life, then you know his preference would be to have NOTHING on display in our home, while I’d prefer to have EVERYTHING.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t share another DIY idea with you all, cuz my friend Mel from The Vintage Gypsy came up with the cutest photo holders ever so that I didn’t have to!

Made from vintage door knobs, you can whip a couple out and have a pretty little spot to showcase all those lovely snapshots you took over the holidays.

Tools needed: 16 gauge wire and needle nosed pliers.

Step 1 - DIY Photo HoldersStep 1: Select doorknob for the job.

Step 2: DIY Photo HoldersStep 2: Disassemble doorknob, taking out screws.

step 2: DIY Photo HoldersStep 3: Pull wire out of coil and wind it around widest part of pliers, wrapping 2-3 times around.

step 3: DIY Photo HoldersStep 4: Decide what height you want your holder to be; the shorter it is the more sturdy it will be.

step 4: DIY Photo HoldersStep 5: Cut enough wire to allow you to wind it around the base of the doorknob, then thread through the hole where the screw was, clamping it tight to the knob.

step 5: DIY Photo HoldersStep 6: Wrap remaining wire around the base, then stand back to admire your work.

step 6: DIY Photo HoldersBehold! The finished product.

Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different.

  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After… [Continue Reading]

  • I’ve shard in the past my struggles with sleeping. (check out this post – our readers shared TONS of great ideas for getting better sleep at night!)

  1. Best blog ever! :)

  2. A definite bargain compared to 20 ct 4 x six gloss
    paper at $5. F Retail fee: $19. Look for comparable devices in the future, specifically as the inkless paper
    technology is improved upon and made less expensive to manufacture.
