Copper Photo Holders // DIY

I’ve had these cute little copper photo holders hanging around on my desk for ages and finally got around to taking their photos today. As I’ve said before, I am so terrible at printing out and putting up photos. Half the problem is that I don’t know where to put them and photo frames take up so much space on a desk. Fortunately the copper photo holders are made from just a small piece of pipe and need virtually no space. Win! It’s also handy for your little to-do lists or note son your desk.

Use simple copper pieces to make your own DIY photo holder

What To Do:

Start by cutting the slit in the pipe. Rock the pipe back and forth, around at least half of the pipe. Slowly tighten the pipe cutter, until it has cut through.

Cut off the other side of the photo holder, 3 cm away from the edge.

You can use two holders to make little feet, or you can just use one on the side, to hold up your notes.

I’m still in my copper space, as you can see from the pot plant stand, succulent holder and mousepad. There’s (at least) one more copper DIY planned, which will be coming soon, so watch this space!
