DIY reclaimed wood picture holder
Have a scrap piece of wood? Make a DIY reclaimed wood picture holder with your scrap pieces.
This scrap reclaimed wood picture holder was insanely easy to make. While I love painting there was no painting, no drying times, no staining, literally no fuss! I had it up and holding pictures within minutes.
I’ve been redecorating our master bedroom on a shoestring budget. From the paint to the décor my goal is to spend less than $100 to redo our bedroom. This DIY craft most definitely fits into the budget since I only had to pay for the photo prints (they were a whopping .09 apiece).
I can’t wait to get our room all finished up and show you guys how it turns out but for now, I will show you the DIY picture holder I made to go along with the rest of my frugal décor in our room.

Here’s what you need to make your own DIY reclaimed wood picture holder
Click here to learn how to attach a sawtooth hanger. It’s super simple especially if you have a piece of painter’s tape
1. GATHER MATERIALS
I didn’t have any sawtooth hangers so I used some fancy picture-hanging hardware and it required a drill.
2. LAY OUT YOUR PHOTOS
To be sure I had the spacing right I laid my 4×6 photos out on my reclaimed wood. I just eyeballed this but if you want yours to be perfect and exact you can use your tape measure to perfect your spacing.
3. HAMMER IN THE CLIPS
The clips I used already had nails attached to them. They were a little difficult to hammer into the wood though. I am fairly certain, since the clips I used were in the office department of the store, that they were made to push into a corkboard and not wood. But hey, it worked!
4. ATTACH HANGING HARDWARE
If you need a visual on how to attach a sawtooth hanger check out this post. I used my Ryobi drill to screw in my hardware but a drill isn’t completely necessary, a screwdriver will work too it’s just not as quick and easy.
5. ADD YOUR PICTURES & HANG ON THE WALL
This reclaimed wood photo holder is going in our master bedroom so I tried to choose photos that were good ones of both my husband and myself.
