A fun way to display photos. 
Super easy to do.  All you have to do is cut a thin slit to hold the photo.
This is the saw I used -- I think its called a coping saw!
I painted this wooden ring white and then epoxyed it to the bottom of the croquet ball for it to stand. You can also use a button that has an indentation, or anything else you might find to do the trick. 
Heres one of the finished pieces.

Third but not quite final project from the Craigslist free croquet set.  I used the croquet balls to make these fun photo holders.  Super easy to do -- even for those not handy with tools.  I used three because items seen to look better grouped in odd numbers.  Besides, I needed 1 croquet ball for my final project (coming real soon!) -- if you're keeping track I now have 1 croquet mallet and 1 croquet ball left.

I found a vintage Croquet set with stand next to a garbage can today.

Missing the balls! Darn!

But, I think I'll make candle holders with what a got.

I just love this idea!
