How To Make Nice Photo Holders
I like setting out photos round my home, they`re good reminders of some perfect moments of my life. But sometimes I haven`t got enough space for frames, that`is why I created my own photo holders. They`re perfect for small photos and, by the way, can stand everywhere, It`s also nice that I can imagine any decor i like for them!
Let`s make some photo holders together!
Things you need:
- quikrete (water, bucket and shovel for mixing)
- popsicle mold
- cooking spray
- nail polish
Start by spraying or rubbing some oil onto the insides of your popsicle mold to keep your concrete from sticking.
Take out your wire and make the holder part. I just wrapped wire giving it a "stem" and then made a few loops in the shape of a circle that will hold my photo. You could make the top part in any shape too, like a heart or a square, or even an initial.
Mix up your quikrete according to the directions on the package. Pour your concrete mixture into each popsicle molds and give it a good tape to remove all the air pockets. Once you have the concrete set, add in your wire holders. Let them dry.
Paint them as you like. We used nail polish to paint ours. We dropped nail polish into an old container full of water and then used a toothpick to give it a bit of a swirl. Then we lowered the photo holder into the nail polish, gave it a slight twist and pulled it back out. The nail polish will grab right onto whatever it touches and lift right out of the water.
