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.
