Every Christmas I seem to get quite the pile of Christmas cards, which don’t get me wrong – I loveeeee this! I love snail mail, I loveee pictures, and I love catching up with old friends and reading christmas letters it’s kind of like my own little personal coffee date! But the pile is never pretty- always chaos! I struggle with trying to have a way to present the chaos, but not take up a ton of space and

First cut some twine and take two branches that might be shorter than what you anticipated and tie them together to make one bigger more dramatic branch. I used the natural colored twine so it would be a little more hidden.

After creating a bigger “branch” I took some cotton butchers twine and tied the branch to my birch branch. I wrapped this many times so that it would be nice and secure.

I then hung three more branches for four total.

Just space the branches out and be sure to tie them all on the same side of the branch.

Once all your branches are tied on and secure it’s time to add some zest!

I had some pinecones I gathered while on a hike that were perfect for that winter wonderland look I was going for. You will notice some of the pinecones are white washed looking, if you like that look check out my DIY on how to achieve this. Otherwise simply grab some fishing wire (that was it’s clear and not visible) and hang the pinecones scattered throughout the branch.

Next I placed two nails in the wall and hung the branch securely on them. Then grab some clothespins and start pinning your cards to the branches- easy!!

Super cute and easy, a great way to bring the outdoors and pine smell into the home all the while mixing it up when it comes to card display!

It would be super cute to string some copper lights through the branches too for a twinkle effect!! (get the battery operated kind- wink wink!)
