With just a piece of bailing wire you can turn old salt and pepper shakers into a place you can display your photos. What a beautiful center piece for a wedding or party.
Here's what you need :
Any miscellaneous shaker, with or without a mate
Bailing wire- 16 or 18 gauge- approx. 12 '' per holder
Home Depot approx. $3.00 a roll
One roll will last a lifetime!
Needle nose Pliers
A pencil to wrap around
Cut a piece of wire about 12''
Use pliers to curl in at one end. This will protect you from the sharp ends.
Make a loop, about the size of a quarter-twice, this is where the photo will be held.
Wrap the straight end 2 or 3 times around a pencil. Slide the pencil out and your holder is done.
Use your hands to straighten and adjust where needed. Now decide how tall you
Here are some variations. Have fun !
I used mine to display some vintage Valentines.
