This easy home decor tutorial is perfect for your desk or shelf.
A photo stand seriously can’t get much easier than this. Here’s what you’ll need.
Instructions for DIY Wood Block Photo Holder:
First, you need to cut your wood to size. You want the wood large enough that it won’t topple over with the weight of the acrylic sheet and at least wide enough that the sheet fits in the slot you’re about to make.
I cut the wood block down to 11″ x 2″ and it is 1″ tall.
Now, set your table saw at a 10-degree angle and with the blade at a 1/2″ height. Cut a groove through the middle of the wood block making sure you do not go all the way through the wood.
Sand your wood block to make it smooth.
Tape off whatever design you want using painter’s tape and spray with a few light coats of spray paint.
Once the paint has dried, sandwich your photo between the two acrylic sheets and place it in the photo stand.
This project is seriously so simple I almost didn’t write it up, but it’s just too cute. I love seeing it sit on my desk.
