|As you can see, it's incredibly exciting|
One thing we have hung up is our Christmas card...holder? Banner? Help me find a good word here, please. We don't have a mantle so last year I grabbed some ribbon, clothespins, paint, and scrapbook paper and made us a card holder.
|Strung up on our wood beams - so pretty!|
Decoart paint in a holiday red & green
Decorative paper that coordinates with the ribbon
I started by painting the clothespins, half in green and half in red. While they dried, I sliced up my paper to fit the clothespins. I chose to only cover one side with the paper as that's all you'll see. Once the clothespins were dry, I broke out my vat of Modge Podge and gave the pins a thin coat and attached the paper. While they sat for a bit, I cut my ribbon . Here you have some flexibility; just make sure it's enough to string up where you want it. I want to say mine is at least 6 feet (hey, it was last year - what do you want from me?).
That's it! You now have a lovely, easy card display for the holidays. Let me know if you make one, I'd love to see it.
See you tomorrow for Day 2!
