Every year I have no idea what to do with all the beautiful Christmas Cards we get. I’ve always wanted some great way to display them. So, when I looked outside this morning and saw a big branch down in the yard, I thought I would try to make it a Christmas card holder.
This project was super simple I just hot glued some twine on the back of the cards and stuck them up there. (I blurred out our friends faces in case they don’t want to be all over blog world, well at least my little blog world.)
Not all of them could fit, so I tucked the leftovers in a bowl (which you may remember from my Christmas Centerpiece – sadly my little man finally climbed up and ruined it)
This sits right in our entry way on my wine rack (you can see how I redid it here using our old dock – it was one of my first blog posts so excuse the bad pictures!)
Speaking of redoing something check out the before shot of this reindeer I found in my mom’s basement.
Nothing wrong with it – just not my style. So I stripped the poor guy of his greenery and gave him a coat of spray paint.
He was feeling a bit shy and naked so I add this cute jingle bell around his neck and some greenery.
You can sneak a peek of our guest bedroom thru this door – I promise I’ll give you a tour in the new year.
If you are wondering how my branches are just sticking up there, I actually just stuck them in the slats of the dock board (you could use floral foam though). Then I tied them with fishing line to the nails in the wall that are normally holding up the pictures that hang here.
Ok – back to wrapping presents, can’t believe Christmas is next week!
I could really use some elves about now…
Too bad this guy’s all I got :)
