I got my first Christmas cards in the mail the other day. It was so much fun to get mail and see how loved ones are doing. Then I realized that I didn't have anything to display the cards on. How would I be able to enjoy them all season long if they sat in their envelopes amongst a pile of bills? No no, this would not do at all. I decided to come up with some way to display them using things I already had at home.
Presenting my Christmas card line!
It was super simple and cheap to make. As a result, it's not the best looking thing but it's functional.
I took a piece of green ribbon (probably 2.5 or 3 feet long) and fastened it to the wall using two clear push pins. I positioned the pins so that the ribbon would sag a little, creating an arc.
Then I tied an extra bit of red ribbon into a bow on the middle of the line to give it a little extra holiday flair.
Using paper clips, clothespins and any similar devices, I attached the cards to the ribbon. I happened to have these adorable mini clothespins left over from another project, but they are not necessary for having a card line.
And there you have it! A beautiful, easy way to display Christmas cards.
