Is it too early to start thinking about Valentine’s crafts? I hope not because I’m sharing one whether you like it or not! Actually, these little copper photo holders would work all year long. I saw some gold ones similar to these in different geometric shapes as I was browsing through a store a few months ago and decided to see how easy it was to make some heart versions! I also am loving all things copper right now and thought that using copper wire would send these over the edge of cuteness. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make and I LOVE how they turned out!!
For this project, you will need:
- Heavy copper wire
- Wooden blocks
- Needle nose pliers/wire cutters
- Hot Glue or Super Glue
You will be making 2 hearts, so keep that in mind when you begin. You will need more wire than you probably think! Begin by making a heart out of the wire using your pliers if you want.
Once you heart is formed, twist the wire around the bottom and bring it around to the front to form another heart.
Then form the second heart in the same way, twisting any leftover wire around the base.
Trim the wire to the length that you desire.
Drill a small hole in the center of each block, making sure not to go all the way through the block.
Put a small dab of hot glue or super glue on the end of the wires and insert them into the drilled holes.
And you are done!!
Cards and photos fit perfectly in between the 2 hearts without slipping or falling. I love Valentine’s crafts that can be used all year long and these will probably be moved from room to room in my house all year long!
