Gather your supplies:

Start out by spray panting your animals in your preferred colors. I chose a metallic gold, light pink, light mint, and white.

Spray the same number of alligator clamps in the coordinating colors. I did 2-3 coats for full coverage.

Set the animals aside to dry for a couple of hours.

Locate your drill and a bit that is the same diameter as your alligator clamp wire.

Firmly hold your animal and drill a hole toward the back in a spot that will be best balanced. I like to drill toward the back.

Stick your alligator clamp through the hole until it hits the base of the animal belly.

That’s it! You have a DIY animal photo holder. I ended up making about eight of them, ha!

Clip your favorite photos, holiday cards, mementos…you name it. They would look so cute in a kiddo’s bedroom or playroom. That’s where most of ours will head most likely.

I like to use mine as photo holders and table place holders when we host dinner at our house.

They’d also be super cute at a whimsical and casual wedding as table number holders. So many uses!
