DIY Valentine’s Day Photo Holders

It’s a simple idea but very effective! The wooden block acts as a weight and a simple small clothespin holds an image for display.

I also love using these picture holders to display all the bits and pieces of ephemera I’ve collected over the years.

Old photo booth photos, concert ticket stubs, or even (as I added to my photos) a Zoltar ticket.

They’re especially fun in a kid’s or teen’s room, including bedrooms! It doesn’t take up much space, so it’s easy to place on a shelf or ledge.

  1. Wipe down the blocks to ensure they are free of any dust or debris.
  2. Add a strip of Crazy Glue to one side of your clothes pin. Do not add any glue to the end that will hold the images (this end will stick out above the block). Only add glue to the end you normally press; This is the part that will be glued to the block.
  3. Press the pin and block together and hold for a few seconds while it sets. Allow to dry completely for an hour or so.
  4. Next, use a fine-tip paint brush to draw patterns on your cube. There is no need to draw a pattern on the bottom where the photo holder will rest.
