I always feel crafty around the holidays but I like to make things that I’ll actually use or display for at least a few years. I’ve been in need of a way to display holiday cards and had seen these all over Pinterest the past few years. It seemed easy enough so I hit up Michaels and Amazon (because as much as I love Michaels, they just don’t always have everything; and because Amazon Prime….) and put it together over two evenings (maybe 2 hours total? 2.5 max). It honestly was SO easy that I wasn’t planning on posting it, but then I thought better. So sorry for process shots – but I think you can get it.
Christmas Card Wreath
What you need:
- 1 wire wreath frame – I think I got the 18 inch but you can get whatever size works for you
- clothespins – I ordered green and red from Amazon; they were different sizes and the larger red ones (3 5/16″) worked best; you could also buy regular clothespins and spray paint them
- ribbon – I used 4 different 3/8″ Christmasy ribbon and a wider one to hang it with
What to do:
Paint the wreath and/or clothes pins if you want. I didn’t – the wreath is already green and I bought colored clothes pins.
Clip on clothes pins so that it opens toward the outside. I alternated colors leaving 2-3 fingers-width in between each.
Cut ribbons into pieces and tie onto middle two rings of the wreath. I started with one ribbon in between each clothespin. Then filled in with a second ribbon in between some clothes pins. I would have done 2 in between every clothes pin but the ribbon didn’t quit make it that far.
Hang it! I used a wider Christmasy ribbon to hang it with.
