Here I have used a piece of cardboard and cut it into 4 circular shapes. Though it is a completely handmade Diy project, so the size can be varied for everyone. Anyone can make any desired size or shape to create the base of this DIY Picture Holder. In my case, the base size is approximately 9cm.

Stick that cardboard with the help of a hot glue gun. The base thickness of this wire photo holder totally depends on you, you can decrease or increase the base thickness as per your selection of the size and shape of your DIY handmade gift.

I have covered the base with white glitter, as I have made a winter scene with two cute little penguins and a few snowballs so I think this white glitter will be appropriate for this wire picture holder stand. You can choose other colours too but must remember that the colour will be relevant to your DIY project.

Step 2 : Making the Penguins for DIY Photo Holder

I am not so good at sculpting, so I resolved this problem with this aluminium sheet. Believe me, it’s a super easy and simple technic that anyone can easily make this cute DIY handmade gift with. Fold and crumble the aluminium foil as your desired shape.

Step 3 : Making the Airdry Clay

For this project, I have used this mouldit clay it is an Easy-to-Use Epoxy Compound Air dry  Clay and perfect for Crafting. You can use it to create shapes and 3D artworks.

You can find 2 packets inside it, one is hardener and the other is resin, mix those properly until you get a white clay and the best part of this clay is that It will take only 10-20 minutes to completely dry.
