Make your own Photo Holder

I made this picture holder for my Granddaughters birthday in March she loved it.

To make your own photo holder, you will need an old frame. I bought this frame from a thrift store for $1.99. The wire and eyelets cost $3.00 I already had the paint so I went to it. Approx. 1 and a 1/2 hours later It was finished.  So, she received a present that she loved and I had a blast making it for her and spent less than $5.00.
