Today’s thrift store makeover is a little different… no paint involved! I love buying bags of vintage spools and was thrilled to find these bright orange ones a few years ago. Their black and white thread made them perfect for Halloween! So I turned them into photo holders. And scroll down to see my oil can photo holders, too!

Vintage Spool & Oil Can Photo Holders
I can pretty much turn anything into a photo holder:
These can be used for holding photos or cards or used as place card holder at the dining table. (Well… maybe not the oil can.)
I started by making these wire loops out of dark annealed wire.
Then I dipped the straight ends into some E6000 before sticking them into the holes on top of the spools or the oil can.
Here’s the finished product… along with my children’s block photo holders!
I first made these digital Halloween cabinet cards 8 years ago!
