This DIY picture holder by Passion Shake gives us a chance to display our keepsakes in an organised and crafty way – always a bonus! So whip out the paints and woodblocks, let’s showcase our best thrifty finds.

You Will Need
- Wooden blocks
Prepare your wooden blocks for painting (sandpaper and wash if necessary). Get creative and paint your wooden blocks. Use masking tape to create crisp lines.
Once dry glue the clothes pegs to the back of the blocks using strong craft glue. And that’s it. Now you can display all your best pics in your new DIY picture holder!
