DIY photo holders are wonderful gifts to friends and family and they aren’t all that hard to make.
We’ll show you how to make a fun Puppet Wobbly Photo Holder by using just a few inexpensive materials.
We really like to use rocks for making interesting crafts for kids and other projects, and they make a perfect base for DIY photo holders.
We are so excited to show you this awesome photo holder you can create using rocks and some other simple materials. It is super easy to make and super interesting too.
If you are looking for a classy project, make the decorated stone only, but for a silly and sweet look certainly add the puppet too.
So have your kids run outside, gather some rocks, wash them out with soap, let them dry and they are ready to make this project.
