You all might have seen these in Target for $10 a piece. They are really easy to make. All you need is a wire hanger and some pliers. I twisted the hanger around the pliers in a circulare motion to make the swirly pic-holding part.
On the other one I drilled holes into a decopauged block of wood, then inserted the wires.

I also bought some mini clothes pins like these and I am excited about using those on my next pic holders!

My, those are some EXPENSIVE clothes pins! My cousin is getting married next month and she was looking at name ...holders. You know, those little card holders that tell you where to sit. Anyways, yeah, we went to iParty and they're like $3 for one, so she didn't get them.

It never occured to me that it could be made so easily. Well of course, those were a little fancier with little metal clips, but oh well. I can make mine cool in a differnet way. So yeah, awesome idea. It'll be my wedding gift to her  Wink Thanks for sharing it!!!

yeah, my bad. That wasn't the best link to PURCHASE the clothespins. Just to get the idea of how small they are. I actually bought a decent size bag of them at joanne fabrics for like .99 cents or something. But of course Joann doesn't even have them on their website.  Sad  And I looked for those mini alligator clips cause I thought those would be cute to hold the pics, but they are way more costly than the clothespins.

If you want to make your own wire picture holders or wire photo holders you can get some really great and simple ideas from the products on www.wirehomedecor.com

All of the products are really nice but would be simple to make yourselves. If you dont like that idea, the prices are also relatively low too!

My favorite is http://wirehomedecor.com/FourFootWireWallPhotoCardHolder.html
