Earlier this week I posted on Instagram, (follow me for scintillating posts like that, haha) that I had received my photo order of this year's family photos.
I had a bunch of fancy new photos and needed something new to do with them.
I made a vintage door knob photo holder.
Last fall, I picked up these vintage door knobs and have
been waiting for the right project to use them.
The picture holder was the just the thing!
For the back board, I cut a 1x4 down to 3 feet. Then stained it.
The doorknobs all had different sized holes so I used a variety of dowels
to hold the knobs on the board.
I drilled holes in the board that matched the size of each of the dowels.
I cut the dowels down to about 1-1.5 inches, depending on the knobs.
Then I glued them into the drilled holes in the boards.
I had to use a variety of glues to attach to door knobs to the dowels because all of them were different. I used hot glue, e6000 and wood glue.
I ordered my photos from mpix, (Not getting paid for this, just passing on an awesome photo place.)
and had them printed in 10 x 13 and mounted to mat board to give them a little extra weight.
That way I don't have to frame them.
I looped some ribbon and simply taped it to the back of the photos with packing tape.
How's that for simple?
I had our family photo printed 16 x 20 and mounted on double weight mat board, then placed it into the frame I had last years photo in.
I'm pretty happy with how simple it was to do this!!
And looking at those photos of my babes makes me so happy!!
