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.

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.


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!
