Wire holders are a nice way to display photos and they're easy to change out too. I'll show you how to make your own.

To make the photo clips you need some craft wire and a pair of needle nose pliers.

To start, grip the ends of the wire with the pliers and turn the wire around the pliers three or four times. Then release the end.

You will be left with a nice spiral. Press the wire so the circles are flat against each other and you can see the loops.

Repeat the process for as many holders as you would like.

To hold the wires upright, fill a small flower pot with modeling clay. Push the wires into the clay so that they stand up in the pot.

When it doesn't have photos it's a cute little wire flower pot with spiraly flowers.

Slip some photos into the wire coils and you've got a cute photo display for your home! What an easy project. Why not make some to give as gifts too! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
