Welcome to Day One of the 2017 Handmade Holidays blog hop! I’ve joined together with a group of crafty bloggers to bring you DIY Christmas gift ideas today, DIY Christmas decor ideas tomorrow, and recipes the next day. Today I’m sharing a great gift to make for grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles, or other family members — a wood photo holder. (Scroll down to enter our giveaway for a Michael’s gift card!) Here’s what I started with:

DIY Wood Photo Holder
- wood scraps (I actually bought mine at Hobby Lobby.)
- bulldog clip
- jute (optional)
First, sand the wood scraps and drill a hole in the top center. I cheated a little by buying a bag of wood from Hobby Lobby that was already sanded.
Next, paint the wood scraps.
Once the paint has dried, sand the wood pieces as much or little as you want to get the desired effect.
Then just screw in the clip. We made these for our Ephesians summer Bible study this year. It was a super simple project for even the ones who didn’t think they were creative.
With a photo or drawing this would be a great present for a grandma. (Take it from a grandma!)
Now take a look at all the other DIY Christmas gift ideas in the hop.
And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
