Christmas Card Holder + Display


Christmas Card Holder + Display

I'm so excited to be taking part in this year's Home for Christmas Blog Hop being hosted by Hometalk.com and Countryliving.com! Bloggers from around the world will be sharing home tours and holiday projects you'll want to pin and share so be sure to scroll through this entire post until you get to the linky party! Now, let's do a little crafting. I'm turning a dollar store plate charger into an awesome Christmas card display (shown above), here's how you can too!

Home for Christmas

There are so many ways to display cards, you can hang them on your tree, stand them on a table, tape them to the wall, or you can take a dollar store plate charger, a handful of clothespins (also purchased at the dollar store), a few embellishments, and create an amazing Christmas card holder!

Supplies


plate charger 
12 clothespins
ribbon
ric-rac ribbon
decorative paper
hot glue gun

I know I've mentioned it a couple times already but, you can find all these supplies, outside the glue gun, at your local dollar store. Love inexpensive crafting! 

Directions

To start off I wrapped ONE prong of the clothes pin with 1 1/2 inch pieces of ribbon using hot glue.

Add ribbon to the clothespin

Next I glued the clothespins to the back of the charger. Just remember to place them so that the ribbon prong faces out!

Finally I glued on a colorful pieces of scrapbooking paper (wrapping paper would work too) to the center of the charger and outlined it with a piece of ric-rac. For fun I added a glittered ornament I had left over from a previous project, Free Holiday Printables.

Almost forgot! To create a hanger I simply unfolded a paper clip and hot glued it to the back of the charger as well, easy peasy!
