Quick, cheap, and easy Christmas card display
Sometimes Pinterest sucks me in and when it spits me out two hours later, I feel like I've been lost in a never-ending vortex and have only a stiff neck to show for it.
This was not one of those times.
Yesterday I was there for about two minutes when I saw this pin from a friend and immediately thought, "I need that!" I did not take one more second to think about it before I ran upstairs, grabbed my ball of kitchen string, and started wrapping a cabinet door in it.
For several years now, I've looked at the sorry stack of Christmas cards sitting in my kitchen and thought I really wasn't doing justice to all of those families and people we love. But creating a way to display those cards just never ended up high on my list of things to do during the month of December.
That's why I love this quick and easy Christmas card display. It will take you longer to read this post than it will for you to put together this display.
Here are the steps:
1. Find a ball of string, yarn, or twine. (I wanted to use my red and white twine from Ikea but my kids used it all without telling me. Story of my life.)
2. Wrap it around a door a few times. (I used a cabinet door over my computer, but you could do it on a pantry door or a closet door instead.)
3. Tie the string/twine/yarn on the back side of the door.
4. Use paper clips or clothespins or something similar to affix the cards to your string.
Done. Seriously easy. And, for me at least, free, because I had all the materials on hand.
How do you display your Christmas cards?
