Easy recycled frame photo holder

Easy recycled frame photo holder

Do you have an old frame without glass lying around and don’t know what to do with it?  You can make a cute recycled frame photo holder.  You attach the photos with mini clothespins so you can change them whenever you like.  I had a smaller frame but you can use a frame of any size. 

Make your frame extra special by personalizing with paint, letters, etc.  It’s not just for photos either.  You can use this frame to hold notes, grocery lists and more.

  • Frame without glass
  • Jute twine
  • Staple gun with staples
  • Mini clothespins
  • Scissors
  • Ruler


1.     Turn your frame to the back and measure from side to side.  Cut a piece of jute twine to fit across the frame with a little extra.

2.     Tie the ends of the jute into a knot.  Use the staple gun to attach the jute to each side.  Place the staple right before the knot.

3.     Continue to place jute across the frame as many as you can fit according to the frame size you are using.  Make sure there is about 6 inches vertically between the jute cords.  My frame was 11 x 12 so only two jute hangers would fit.  Add the mini clothespins to the jute cords and use them to attach photos, notes and more.  Hang on the wall as you would any frame.

4.     Attach the mini clothespins to the jute and add photos or notes as desired.
