Wood Photo Holder

Wood Photo Holder

A few weeks ago I hosted my March Make and Take at my home. It’s been a few months since I hosted one and it was good to get all the ladies together and craft again! For this class I choose  to make these sweet Wood Photo Holders.

March make and take

Look at all these beautiful ladies and their beautiful creations. I think everyone’s projects turned out absolutely incredible. If you weren’t able to attend but you would like to create your own Wood Photo Holder, here’s a little tutorial for you…..

I started with three pieces of  2×4 cut into 11in pieces. I also had a smooth piece of plywood cut to 9in x 9.5in.

I used some Gorilla Wood Glue and clamps to glue the three 2×4’s together side by side.

Once the 2×4’s were glued together, I painted all of the wood pieces with some white craft wood. I have the 2×4’s a bit of sanding to distress the edges.

decoupaging tips

Once the wood was painted it was time to decoupage the scrapbook paper onto the piece of plywood. About a month ago I posted 12 Decoupaging Tips using my Wood Photo Holder as an example. You can hop over there to learn more about the next steps or if you are just looking for some decoupaging tips.

I attached the paper covered plywood to the 2×4 boards with some more Gorilla Wood Glue.

I grabbed some metal clips from Walmart and painted one white. I attached the clip to the board with a bit of super glue.
