Creative Picture Frames & Holders

Spread the love

If you like to hang or display a lot of photos, you may be looking for some creative ways to frame them.  Even though the photos themselves are most likely extremely exciting, sometimes those rectangular frames are not quite what your decorative space is screaming for.  Creative picture frames can add that little extra zing you might be needing.

Creative Picture Frame Ideas

To display photos in an interesting way, all you have to do is think outside the box. Or, in this case, outside the frame. There are a lot of common items that can double as photo holders.

Hang Photos On Vintage Clipboards

I like to collect vintage clipboards and there is no better way to use them then to display a favorite picture.

To decorate my mantel, I used a vintage wood clipboard to hold a photo. This could also be easily hung on the wall.

Make Your Own Clipboard For Photos

If you don’t have access to any vintage wooden clipboards, just make your own! A DIY clipboard photo holder is easy enough to make.

Hang A Photo With A Vintage Pants Hanger

Another real simple idea that I like to use for hanging photos on the wall is to use vintage wooden pants hangers.  This is another example of simply clipping a photo and hanging it.

I had decorated this pants hanger with a little paint and some vintage buttons but you could just leave it plain wood for a more versatile style.

Make A Picture Frame Out Of Pallet Wood

Since wooden pallets are used so much in rustic decor, why not use one to make a picture frame? A pallet frame is such a warm and rustic look.

If you need to add a little fresh greenery to your home, a moss frame will do the trick!
