Every winter, it's the same story. I get a handful of thoughtfully selected, lovingly written cards for the holidays...and, I have nowhere to put them.
Tacked on the fridge with the grocery lists and unpaid parking tickets? Jammed on a shelf between the dusty knick-knacks and piles of unopened mail? Ok, my house isn't THAT disorganized (most of the time), but I'm sure you feel the pain of receiving beautiful mail and having nowhere to display it.
This year, I decided to take matters into my craft-loving hands and make a simple, pretty DIY branch holiday card display. It only requires a few basic supplies to make, can be made as small or as large as you want, and will make your home smell like a pine tree, which is obviously the best reason to make your own. Keep reading to see how to make a DIY branch holiday card display!
- Evergreen branch or bough from your local tree market (check to see if they have free trimmings!)
- Cord or string for hanging the branch, such as waxed cotton cord
- Baker's twine or another type of string to hang the cards
- Mini clothespins
- Wooden beads
Cut a piece of cord to hang your branch, and tie the cord to the branch at two points.
Attach string to the branch to hang the cards.
Trim all the string ends, then hang the branch (Command hooks are great for temporary projects like this!). Attach the cards to the string with mini clothespins.
Finally, tie beads to the ends of the strings so they hang straight.
And that's it! Now you can see and enjoy all that lovely holiday mail for the season.
