Horse Crafts: Make Your Own Horseshoe Photo Frame

Posted by Paige Cerulli

If you're looking for a super fun, super easy horse craft, then you've got to try making a horseshoe photo frame. 

Whether you're looking for a fun craft for the summer, for a horse camp, or just as a creative way to reuse some of your horse's old shoes, making a horseshoe photo frame is a great option.

These frames are easy to make, use very cheap supplies, and come out looking great. You can even decorate your barn, bedroom, or office with these frames, and they make excellent mementos. Horseshoe frames also make a great gift idea, especially if you can get a hold of the shoes from a friend or trainer's beloved horse.

The video below includes clear step-by-step directions on how to make your own horseshoe photo frame. If you haven't done so yet, then ask your farrier to leave behind your horse's old shoes when he comes out for an appointment.

Horseshoes are great craft materials - with a little creativity, you can make all sorts of things out of them. If you can weld or know someone who can weld, then the possibilities are endless. Think about making horseshoes into wine bottle holders, bookends, coat racks, decorative words to hang on the wall, and more.

For a less intensive craft, you can make horseshoes into wind chimes, coasters, and the frames like shown above. Consider using a horseshoe as the frame of a dream catcher. You can also wrap horseshoes with beads, ribbon, and charms to make a decorative wall hanging.

Horseshoes are symbols of luck, and there are many ways that you can incorporate them into your home decor. Hang horseshoes around your home and barn for an attractive feature and to encourage luck to bless your horses and your family.
