DIY Christmas Card Holder


DIY Christmas Card Holder

Today I am sharing with you my easy DIY holder for Christmas cards!  I love displaying Christmas cards, but the fancy displays cost quite a bit of money.  I came up with a cost-effective way to display them on my own!

Total project cost: $1 (I already had clothespins and scissors)

Supplies

  • Christmas ribbon
  • clothespins
  • scissors

Instructions

  1. Measure out ribbon, I used about 1 yard.
  2. Attach clothespin at the bottom to use as a weight
  3. Hang on the wall (you may either nail straight into the wall, or I used a folded paperclip and stapled it to the ribbon, then hung on a nail).
  4. Clip Christmas cards onto ribbon with clothespins

Finished product:


As you get more cards, you can make more ribbon strands.

I used a ribbon at the bottom to hide the ugly clothespin.   I think maybe tying a ribbon at the top would help make it look a little better.

ribbon I used has a reindeer pattern, I think it is from Michael's.

Another way to make this look more festive is to decorate the clothespins.  You can also purchase some on etsy.  A quick look through etsy, I found myself eyeing these:

6 - Mini Holiday Metallic Red + Green Glitter Clothespins with Magnets
May purchase here

Clothespins.  Set of Ten.  Red and Green Gingham
May purchase here
It wouldn't take much to replicate these, just some glue with either paper or glitter.

But, I wanted to keep this project simple and cheap.  So this will do for now!


Hopefully this has inspired you to go display your Christmas cards!
