Vintage Doorknob Photo Holders

Materials Needed:
    Door knob
    Wire cutters
    Jewelry pliers 
    Hot glue gun
    Optional: paint

    Optional first step: paint door knob and let dry
    Use wire cutters to cut 12-15 inches of wire
    Remove rose (flat part that rests against the door) 
    With the knob facing down, attach the wire to the door side

This varies based on the type of door knob you have. You can wrap wire around the smaller part of the knob, use a hot glue gun to attach the wire to the inside of the knob, or loop the wire through any sort of holes on the back side.
    Make the wire go straight up from the knob until it reaches the desired height of holder
    Use the jewelry pliers to make a series of circular loops (1-2 inches in diameter) at the very end of the wire
    Optional: add decorations to the knob
    Display your photo by sliding it between wire loops
