Welcome to this month’s edition of Craft Lightning with a 15-minute DIY craft project. And of course, I picked something from an antique shop to repurpose! I’ve been collecting these vintage wood children’s blocks for a few years now. I love the worn look of them.

Supplies for Vintage Block Photo Holders:
- vintage wooden children’s blocks
- drill ( I use my Dremel.)
- annealed wire
- wire cutters
- Sharpie or other pen to wrap wire around
- round nose pliers
- glue (super glue or E6000)
First, drill a hole in the top center of the block.
Cut a piece of wire (approximately 12″). Wrap one end around the Sharpie 3 times. Use round nose pliers to make a tiny loop in the end of the wire. Bend the long end at an angle so the top loops will be centered.
Drop a bit of glue on a piece of wax paper and dip the straight end of the wire into it.
Then stick that end into the top of the block and let dry.
