DIY Christmas Card Holder

1 Hour

Even though people do not seem to be sending Christmas cards in the mail as much as in years past, I still get several from family members. I always struggle with how to display them. I have put them up on the mantle, on the breakfast bar, taped them to the door, and even stuck them on a metal sun that hangs on my wall. This year I decided to make something to hold them.

Paint the frame first, if desired. I picked a festive Gold Metallic from my DecoArt stash and applied one coat.

Once dry, measure the picture hanging wire to the correct length and cut it using wire cutters. Use a stapler to attach the wire to the back of the frame. I added two pieces; one near the top and one in the middle.

Hang your cards using mini clothespins or clips. You can also paint your clothespins or decorate them with washi tape for a more festive look!
