Friends we are inching closer to the holidays and I have the perfect gift for those remaining people on your list, how about a gift card and a diy gift card holder?
This gift card holder is part of a virtual party with 15 diy bloggers all presenting their own creative diy gift card holders for The Home Depot gift cards.
I made this simple wood gift card holder using two lath screws to hold the gift card in place. A piece of scrap wood makes a nice frame for any of the plastic gift card options:
So many designs to choose from! All of the gift cards are reloadable and available as a digital (eGift) version as well. Visit http://www.homedepot.com/c/Gift_Cards to

I designed this gift card holder as an easy way to present your gift card using items you just might have on hand. It's simple and functional and could be used any time. Gift cards are great for friends, family, wedding gifts, house warming, etc., truly any time of the year.
Once your gift card arrives or if you purchased a gift card at The Home Depot store then you're ready to make the gift card holder.
Below are step by step instructions, including a materials list, to make your own wood gift card holer:
- gift card
- 1x4 scrap wood cut @ 5 1/2" l
- foam brush
- #8 x 1/2" lath screws
- brown paper
- electrical tape
Step 1: Cut a piece of 1x4 scrap wood to 5 1/2" long. Sand edges smooth.
Step 2: Apply stain onto wood. Let dry.
Step 3: Place gift card in center of wood and mark each edge at the middle point.
Step 4: Use a drill to insert 1/2" lath screw into wood. Lath screws are self tapping so no need to predrill. One screw on each short side of the gift card will do.
Once both screws are in place the gift card will be held firmly to the wood.
To make the tape into a bow cut two pieces at equal length. Stick those two pieces together leaving a 1/4" at either end of 'sticky' side exposed. Taking those two exposed sticky ends you can make a loop and stick the ends together. Repeat this process to make many loops.
Wrap up the gift card holder using the brown paper and secure with electrical tape then apply the bow and your gift is ready!
