DIY Geometric picture holders

DIY Geometric picture holders

block25-1-of-1-
Please come over so I can show you my little invention! But if for some reason you can’t right now, I might forgive you and show you some pictures instead. I like DIYs that are simple and have very low probability of fail which is why this one is so great. Let’s be honest, it can’t go wrong, unless you accidentally cut your fingers off (Oops! Yep there is some saw work to do, but you don’t necessarily have to risk your OWN fingers if you know what I mean 😉 So basically I wanted to have some picture holders. Nothing to elaborate, just something that would stand, look pretty and hold other pretty things – photos, print outs, magazine cut outs, you name it. This is how the idea was born. I enjoyed very much making them, probably because there is plenty of  space for your personal touch and endless pattern possibilities. Would you roll your eyes, if I said I love them?

But I do. I do. I do.
I know that in some craft shops you can find beautiful wooden cubes, and yes, they would be perfect for this project. However if you want to go a little bit crazy, and make some asymmetric shapes, you can buy a long panel of wood from your hardware store and cut-it-yourself or alternatively… himself 😀

  
To the point.

You will need:

– geometric wooden pieces
– acrylic paints
– tape
– clothes pins
– craft glue
– golden contact tape

Step by step:
1. Prepare your cubes for painting (sandpaper and wash if necessary)
2. Get creative and paint your cubes. Tape off your line if you want to have crisp lines.
3. Wait for the paint to dry.
4. Decorate with golden contact paper.
5. Glue the clothes pins at the back of the cubes, using strong craft glue.

Are you going to risk your fingers to make these? 🙂 Any particular patterns you have in mind?

Rewelacja. Nie wielkim wysiłkiem i z dobrym pomysłem cuda można stworzyć. Nie wiedziałam, że akryle nadadzą się do pomalowania drewna :)))
Miłego dnia Aga :))

    Aga Tinca

    Zwłaszcza że chłopak wyręczył mnie w cięciu drewna :)) Akryle się świetnie sprawdzają w malowaniu drewna… malowałam już krzesła, stoły i inne drobiazgi i farba bardzo ładnie wygląda nawet po kilku latach.
    Nawzajem Marysiu 🙂

Świetny pomysł – trochę mi przypominają moje drewniane ‚dziadki do orzechów’ które zrobiłam na takich kawałkach deseczek dwa lata temu na święta 🙂 Ale pomysł z klamerką zapamiętam i doczepię do nich – będę miała świetne miejsce na przechowywanie kartek świątecznych 🙂
Wariatka ze mnie – właśnie sobie uświadomiłam, że mamy maj, a ja już o świętach piszę 😀 Ale to nic – przyznam się, że pierwszy świąteczny prezent już kupiłam miesiąc temu!!! 😀
Buźka,
